Recruitment needs to be ‘more thorough’

Motor trade employers have been warned to thoroughly check the last five years of a jobseeker’s working life before taking on a candidate.

Anne Fairweather, head of public policy at the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) said that good practice is not to tick boxes but carefully review a potential employee.

“Criminal record checks are not the be and end all of good quality recruitment practice,” she added.

Chris Eastwood, from recruitment consultancy Chris Eastwood Automotive, said “You really need to look at the gaps in CVs and ask the appropriate questions to find out those things which aren’t told on paper.”
