Permanent shift to Digital RTW checks

(2 minutes to read)

APSCo: ‘The ability to digitally manage these checks during the pandemic proved successful and we’re pleased to see that the progress made during this time hasn’t been lost’.

As managing Right to Work (RTW) checks digitally proved to be a success during the pandemic, the Home Office has announced that this will now be made permanent.

Responding to the announcement, the Association of Professionals Staffing Companies (APSCo) says that this is welcome news for the recruitment sector.

Tania Bowers, Global Public Policy Director at the APSCo, commented, “Having fed into the review we’re pleased that the Home Office has taken the decision to move to a permanent Digital Identity RTW solution. The ability to digitally manage these checks during the pandemic proved successful and we’re pleased to see that the progress made during this time hasn’t been lost.

“The new Digital Identity option has a multitude of benefits. Not only does it have the capability to reduce potential fraud through using sophisticated technology to verify documents, but it also removes the geographical barriers that the traditional process presented to recruiters, employers and applicants. Removing the need for in-person verification allows businesses to recruit from broader talent pools which is crucial during a time of skills shortages.

“APSCo will be working with its members to guide them through the changes and to ensure they are aware of what this means for them, their clients and candidates.”
