An important SAFERjobs campaign is aimed at ensuring the recruitment industry plays a positive role in helping the government to clamp down on illegal working.
The recruitment industry is uniquely placed to help support government initiatives cracking down on illegal working because recruiters will encounter individuals searching for a job in the UK. Through the recruiter’s already strenuous vetting processes they will, from time to time, encounter people without correct right to work in the UK. The link below can be used to report suspected illegal employment and prevent job seekers without the right permission to work moving on to other recruitment organisations.
Through your recruitment company’s registration process, if you think someone is living or working in the UK illegally then you can report it to the Home Office via the link below. You don’t have to give your name and address and any information that you provide will be treated as strictly confidential.
