Over our 25 years, the team at Barringtons has continually been expanding its service offerings, finding new ways to benefit the businesses we work with. Established in 2007, our security vetting services have become some of the most successful elements of Barringtons. The reason for this is simple, personnel checking is a critical process for many enterprises, ranging from government organisations through to corporate companies.
While we all know how important it is for potential employees or contractors to be thoroughly vetted, the process is still complex and time-consuming. That's where Barringtons comes in, as a prime provider of security vetting services to both the Australian Government Security Vetting Agency (AGSVA) and a range of other businesses. Our highly skilled vetting team are experts in their field, with experience across a variety of industries and businesses. This ensures that every client of Barringtons receives the best service in accordance with industry best practises.
Barringtons vetting: Best service, best practice
Barringtons is one of Australia's leading security vetting services providers, assessing employees, contractors and other personnel who may require access to protected or sensitive information. Whether these assets are part of the government sector or not, organisations need to be able to rest easy knowing that their information is only being placed in the hands of people qualified and capable of looking after it.
The two key challenges that come with security vetting are quality and speed, with enterprises needing assurance that every member of their organisation has the required clearances. While the importance of thoroughness cannot be overstated here, it's just as important for the process to be completed as quickly as possible. If this isn't the case, key procedures such as recruitment can be delayed, having a substantial impact on an organisation's operational capacity and productivity.
As one of the biggest and most well-respected vetting services providers in Australia, Barringtons has a reputation for delivering quality without compromising on a quick turnaround. In addition, we pride ourselves on having the experience necessary to ensure industry best practices are always adhered to. We ensure this with our team of assessing officers, many of whom have more than a decade's experience in the security vetting industry.
Barringtons' range of business services cover a broad range of industries, including everything from education and construction to councils and government. This allows us to tailor our approach to the direct needs of each and every client, regardless of whether an employee is being vetted before accessing civil assets or corporate intelligence.
Leaders in the Australian government vetting process
One of Barringtons' core clients when it comes to security vetting and getting an Australian security clearance is the Australian Government Security Vetting Agency (AGSVA). We have worked with the AGSVA since 2007, and since then we have established ourselves as one of its key providers of vetting services across all security clearance levels in Australia.
The Australian Government Security Vetting Agency is part of the Department of Defence, and is designed to eliminate the red tape and drawn-out processes often associated with providing security clearances. The services provided by the AGSVA cover everything from granting initial clearances through to upgrading and reviewing existing clearances, with Barringtons being a critical component of all these processes.
Unlike other industries and corporate environments, where vetting may only be a small part of the hiring process to determine the suitability of a particular candidate, the right clearances are absolutely vital to all levels of government. Any misuse of sensitive information can have devastating consequences for the Australian Government and the Australian people. For this reason, all vetting that takes place at the government level needs to be as stringent as possible, and it's a mark of our team's quality that Barringtons has been a key partner of the Australian Government for so long.
This quality, and our reputation for working with the Australian Government amongst other large businesses is what separates Barringtons vetting services from the pack. In combination with our commitment to quality and speed, Barringtons is proud to provide security vetting services in Australia that are second to none.
