Mitie, the FTSE 250 strategic outsourcing company, has appointed Lisa Thomas as its director of vetting services.
The appointment follows Mitie’s acquisition of Procius, a specialist in pre-employment screening and vetting for the aviation and transport industries.
Lisa, who has previously held senior HR roles within Mitie, will focus on growing Procius within the aviation and general sectors. She will also be responsible for UKCRBs, a Mitie-owned vetting organisation with expertise in Discloure and Barring Service (DBS) and Disclosure Scotland background checks.
Lisa commented: “This is a really exciting opportunity for me. I am looking forward to growing Mitie’s vetting services and bringing a comprehensive employee screening and vetting service to our clients.
“We already have sector specialism in the aviation sector and I plan to mirror this for all sectors.”
Darren Gamage, managing director, technology services, total security management added:
“As our employee screening and vetting business grows it’s critical that we have the right person leading the businesses and with Lisa’s strong HR background I know that she will be a great asset. She brings an in depth understanding of both the HR decision maker and employee screening.”
