A professional Social Media Check is an automated scan of an applicant or employee’s social media history to ensure they are good fit for your organisation. Increasing regulations along with a growing demand for companies to be more socially responsible has accelerated the growth in the Social Media Background Check UK market.

VettingGateway uses smart algorithms to ensure your candidates’ social media accounts are assessed fairly and thoroughly across the seven key index measures of online behaviour, helping to improve the quality of your hires and minimise the risk of brand or reputational damage from content that could be linked to your organisation through new or existing hires.

After each Social Media Check, you will be provided with a comprehensive but easy-to-read report highlighting any issues found.
