Do I have to reference just the 3 year period of employment history or can I reference further back?

As a minimum to satisfy the BPSS you are required to obtain the preceding 3 years worth of employment history for your candidate. You can indeed reference more years if you wish, this can all be customised in VettingGateway.

Do I also need to do a Right to Work check as part of this BPSS process?

Yes as part of employing someone in the UK we always recommend a RTW check is done, identity documents can be captured and saved within our referencing portal for you to view and satisfy yourselves that copies have been obtained from your new employee. However original documents may still need to be viewed.
