The pressure to ensure we recruit and retain the best people is growing ever more intense.  ‘Best’ is no longer merely properly experienced and qualified.  It means making informed recruitment decisions, based on the disclosure of a criminal record.  It means having the right to work in the UK.  And it means a true and verifiable personal history.

For most organisations, the burden of screening, surrounded as it often is by punitive sanctions for failure, is too much to bear.  This is where Cataphract comes in.  We liberate organisations from this weight, and we do so in a variety of ways.
