Outsource your vetting & screening administration


We receive your candidates application form and Immediately commence the verification checks to meet the requirements of BS 7858 : 2012, the SIA, the NSI and other industry bodies and insurers.

Gallinet is owned & run by people who serve the security industry and is staffed by professionals with many years of experience within the specific business sector.

The service includes:


  • Electronic, faxed or postal receipt of application form and letter of authority

    • Fast confirmation of receipt and initial check of application for completeness / readiness to screen

  • Fast commencement of verbal tele-vet

  • Personal references checked

  • Candidate credit check

  • 5 year history verification 

    • Optional 10 year service

  • Electronic delivery of completed screening report and all documents


How we are different?


Unlike some companies providing vetting & screening services our experienced vetting controllers are working to clear the employee for employment, not simply working to complete the process, fail or pass.

They go the extra mile, make the extra calls and investigations where some other providers don't.

We don't require you send us all your candidates, just send us the ones that are going to be time consuming if you wish.

NSI Gold accredited screening department.

Our accreditation contributes towards you obtaining your own.
