The Benefits of Integrated Experian Background Checks


The current pressure on HR recruitment teams is as high as it’s ever been, if not higher, due to the high volume of job applications.

And it’s even higher for any sector where background checks are done as part of the recruitment process.

It can be nothing short of soul destroying if your systems, processes, and procedures aren’t up to the contemporary demand for background checks.

To meet such unparalleled demand, two UK market leaders have joined forces to provide you with integrated background checks that are efficient, effective and equitable.

That’s exactly the result of quick and painless background checks by Experian, integrated into the Vacancy Filler Applicant Tracking System.

"Experian is delighted to have partnered with a market leader in recruitment technology. Recruitment is changing at pace, and this partnership shows a true focus on data, security and technology, which will deliver a smoother and quicker onboarding experience for all recruiters.

The integration of Experian’s background checks into Vacancy Filler’s platform will give customers a seamless candidate onboarding solution and power HR teams to make better, more informed recruitment decisions. A single solution to manage the recruitment process, will see employers being able to track, manage and screen their candidates all in one place. The integration will drastically improve the candidate’s experiences by minimising touchpoints between their interview and their first day in work." Hugo Gretton, Partnerships Development Manager at Experian Partnerships & Alliances.

Matthew Brooks, Head of HR Solutions at Experian Background Checking, said “We are very excited about the months ahead as we continue to grow our partnership with Vacancy Filler and evolve the recruitment industry”.
