All of our employees are security-screened. At a minimum our insured Customer Service Representatives are Criminal Record Bureau certified, with many having undertaken more advanced security checks such as the Counter Terrorist Clearance.
For added security, we are happy for our employees to undertake further record checks to meet customers’ specific security requirements.
