FCA References

We have recently reviewed our processes for requesting, chasing and receiving references for individuals going into roles regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Feedback from clients has been extremely helpful during this review.

We have also enhanced how we display results within the final report by adding a list of employers from which we have sought references, whether the employer is regulated by the FCA and whether we received a ‘regulated reference’ from them.

FCA references will only be sought if you have a package of background checks agreed with Verifile that includes FCA references. To set up a package or for any further information, please contact your Account Manager.
