Checking Qualifications: A cautionary tale for employers
The recent case of a senior NHS executive who earned £1m working in senior roles, despite having lied about his qualifications, highlights the danger of fraud in the recruitment process. According to a recent report in The Guardian, Jon Andrewes claimed to have two PhDs and a Masters degree, although in reality he only had a diploma in social work and a teaching qualification.
The case for employee screening in the legal sector
Having honest, trustworthy staff is vital in a highly regulated sector like the legal profession. Firms stand or fall on their reputations and the quality of their staff – and just one rogue employee in the pack can cause enormous damage.
Why checking qualifications matters
In a competitive job market, the temptation for candidates to ‘embellish’ their CVs to make themselves look good is particularly strong. People mistakenly think that ‘it won’t do any harm’ to exaggerate their experience or claim a higher level of skill than they actually possess – because they can always learn on-the-job and are unlikely in any case to get caught out.
