The Utilities sector employs highly trained staff with specialised capabilities. Security is a key issue in this industry and it is vital for a candidate’s previous employment and education details to be accurate. In addition to the vast quantity of skilled workers, there are also a high volume of call centre staff, who have access to large amounts of confidential customer data.
