New Virgin Atlantic recruits paying for own criminal checks

7 February 2012

Virgin Atlantic is forcing hundreds of new staff each year to pay for their own criminal record checks after referring them to an employment screening firm.

New staff at the airline’s call centre in Swansea have been asked to pay £25 for the background check.

Department of Transport rules require criminal checks for air-side staff but not for other airline employees.

The airline employs around 8,500 people worldwide and recruits hundreds of staff in the UK each year.
