Mitie appoints Lisa Thomas as Director of Vetting Services
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 Human Resources (HR) roles within Mitie, will focus on growing Procius within the aviation and general sectors. Thomas will also be responsible for UKCRBs, a Mitie-owned vetting organisation with expertise in Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and Disclosure Scotland background checks.
Speaking about her new role, Lisa commented:
“This is a really exciting opportunity for me. I’m 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 of Technology Services at Mitie Total Security Management, added:
“As our employee screening and vetting business grows it’s critical that we have the right person leading the businesses. With Lisa’s strong HR background I know that she will be a great asset. Lisa brings an in-depth understanding of both the HR decision-maker and employee screening to this role.”
Mitie announced it has also gained ISO 27001 certification for information security management, which covers Mitie’s employee screening and vetting services.
