Together we’re rethinking employment verifications

We’ve partnered with Reed Screening to begin offering instant employment verifications across the UK. The move is set to overhaul the outdated employment referencing process by saving time while putting employees back in control of their data.

Verifications in the UK - sizing the problem

Over the last few months, we’ve been analysing the market and mapping the data in partnership with Reed Screening. While we all “know” the process could be improved, the data tells the full story.


Do you have any questions? 

How does Konfir work?

Employers can use Konfir to verify the employment details of candidates. Once a verification is submitted, candidates are notfied via SMS to consent and sync their data sources. The data is then pulled, verified, and surfaced to employers in their account. 

How long does the process take?

Setting up an account takes 5 minutes, while sending a verification takes 1 minute, and verifications are processed instantly upon candidate approval.

Is Konfir safe to use?

Konfir is fully hosted on AWS, which benefits from world-class network and infrastructure security. Unlike the traditional approach to verifying through email, Konfir users have complete control over who has access to their information. Konfir is GDPR compliant, ICO registered, and on track to being ISO 27001 certified in Q2 of this year. 

How does Konfir charge?

We charge when an activity is 'connected'. This means that Konfir has successfully accessed a data source from Payroll or Open Banking for the period in question.
