Airside Referencing Procedures

The reference team is trained to thoroughly examine all the information provided by the applicants and quiz them to ensure the information is correct prior to starting the reference process.

By doing this at the beginning ensures they know exactly what information will be required so no hidden gaps of employment or other historical data delay the completion of obtaining a seamless five year history.

The United Avia referencing teams will obtain all of the persons five years history on that clients headed paperwork. This will be addressed to the Authorising Officer of that client for processing with the airport ID centre.

Eligibility to work and Identification

This is a vital legal stage in the recruitment process and United Avia take it so seriously that the checks required are incorporated into our system. The system requires checks on proof of identification and will only expect either a valid passport or a birth certificate backed up with another form of photo identification such as a full driving license. A parallel process is in place for checking the eligibility to work, and the system will only accept the correct documentation from the applicant’s country of origin.

Aviation Regulatory and monitory Bodies

As a specialist recruiter in the aviation environment, understanding and adhering to current aviation law and future changes in law are mandatory. Any new recommendations that should be adopted to embrace safer and compliant working are also monitored and introduced where applicable. United Avia compliance is stipulated by the Department for Transport (DFT) and we monitor all announcements from TRANSEC.

United Avia can manage the whole process from advert placement, telephone pre-selection, interview arrangements, final selection and of course referencing to the relevant airport and clients standard.
