It is company policy to comply with BS7858 standard of screening for new starters as well as those transferring to us under TUPE, in which screening will be conducted retrospectively for a 5 year period.
In order for you to be fully aware of our screening process and allow it to be completed as soon as possible, I have taken the time to give you a breakdown of what it involves, the documents we require from you and also how it will be conducted.
Documents you will receive from Lodge Service to be completed by you.
This can be found at the back of this TUPE Welcome pack and is similar to our standard company application form however you are not applying for your position, it is purely for the purpose of your personal file; please fill it in as fully and as accurately as possible. Of special importance to us are 2 personal references (which have known you for a minimum 2 years) and details of employment history for the last 5 years, please include any periods of unemployment i.e. collection of job seekers allowance or other benefits. For sections such as these we ask you give as much information as possible, full names, addresses, telephones numbers, employment dates and Web or email contacts.
When completing the transfer form under the headings Employment History and Formal Education:
Please arrange with two persons who are willing to supply character references for you that they are willing to be contacted by us. They must be people who have known you closely for at least five years and who are not your relatives or Lodge Service employees and are not living at your current address. Please provide their full names, addresses, postcodes, telephone numbers, occupation and the number of years they have known you.
If you have any difficulties or require assistance, please do not hesitate to contact the Screening Centre (EMPS) on 01325 480071.
Copies will be made of all the following documents and these will be kept private and confidential at Lodge Service Head Office on your personal file.
