Keith Rosser, group director of recruitment business, Reed, and director of Reed Screening, has an overarching mission to make the world of work safer for workers, jobseekers, and employers. Reed Screening, established in 2011, has grown into one of the UK’s largest screening organizations and runs as a separate business. It provides employment background checks on permanent and supply workers for a range of companies and sectors, as well as Reed clients. Rosser is also responsible for Reed Group’s risk and corporate governance agenda, sitting on the audit and risk committee at board level. Rosser believes Right to Work checks and hiring must become more digital to increase the safety for workers and jobseekers. Rosser also contends that hiring must become more digital, and there is also an economic imperative for this to happen. Rosser has no shortage of ideas or projects in mind and underway to enable digital hiring. He advocates a Right to Work system that enables employers to validate whether a British or Irish passport is accurate with the Passport Office. Outside of Reed, he wears several hats that help to further the cause, including chair of the Better Hiring Institute (BHI). He is also a council member of the European global pre-employment vetting trade association, the PBSA (Professional Background Screening Association), and chair of the Criminal Records Trade Body (CRTB). In addition, he is chair of JobsAware, a charity founded by the Metropolitan Police that tackles labor market exploitation targeting vulnerable workers.
