Urban Personnel Services has been using the Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) in order to provide our clients with an accurate criminal checking system. This is now the only method that is accepted by the SAPS to conduct fingerprint checks.
Urban Personnel Services has taken a proactive step in offering our clients this outsourced service. The system is mobile and therefore our AFIS registered consultants are able to conduct fingerprint checks on the premises of our clients at a time that is convenient. This will apply to their current staff and potential staff that are not placed by Urban Personnel Services or any other supplier. We check for criminal records and the data is sent straight to the SAPS’s criminal database. The turnaround time for the results of the criminal check is 48 hours.

Sourcing Methods

It is a well-known fact that the current recruitment market has a shortage of good caliber candidates. Most industries, companies and sectors find it increasingly difficult to fill their positions and this is a situation that seems to become more acute each year.      

For this reason, Urban Personnel Services does not only rely on the traditional methods of sourcing suitable candidates, but also by using technology which is a tried and tested business model.

This enables our team to source the right kind of candidates, our clients require, even under the toughest conditions. We therefore make it a priority to research the various markets to ensure that we attract suitably skilled candidates.

Our highly experienced consultants focus on the candidate’s suitability for a specific vacancy assigned to Urban Personnel Services. A detailed job order specification is obtained from our client, to ensure that we cover all the dimensions required for that specific vacancy and to source the correct candidate for our clients need.

We perform both competency based and targeted selection interviewing methods to ensure that we gain a balanced appraisal of a candidate’s specific capabilities and skill set.

The candidate is always interviewed by an Urban Personnel consultant before referring the candidate to the client.

By making your business our business, we pride ourselves on quality over quantity and by doing this we will ensure confirmation that the candidates CV is an accurate reflection of his/her profile and career history. Urban Personnel Services will conduct assessments and perform any additional tests required by the client.
