With his trust in candidates at an all time low, Tutti Recruitti caught up with Birmingham 30 under 30 Entrepreneur Miles Hainsworth;
"At the end of the day it's just an additional background check. I don't understand the uproar this has caused
It's widely accepted to pry into a candidates financial affairs, so why not their private affairs?
Post offer we have a 1 month background screening. At this point we undertake an extensive review of the candidates online footprint. If any red flags are identified (social drinking, numerous children, more than one partner over the last 5 years) we undertake a 'private life deep dive'
Do they get to work on time? What do they do after work? What did they get up to at the weekend? What do their friends say about them? What do their children say about them? I ensure all these questions are answered by our 'Candidate Private Investigator'
Despite reports to the contrary, I can ensure candidates that this process is not intrusive at all
If you have nothing to hide, what's the problem?"
