We are delighted to be working with Konfir, a B2B SaaS platform that lets employers instantly access employment or income records for any UK-based worker, with their consent. Konfir is at the forefront of the shift in determining how employment and income data is captured, verified, and shared, and has become the first certified Attribute Service Provider (ASP) under the UK Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework (DIATF).
As the first government certified provider of employment and income data, globally, Konfir provides employment and income information, including work history, previous job titles and dates of employment, to companies or Identity Service Providers (IDSPs).
Employers can request and share employment and income information at the touch of a button, speeding up the time to hire and onboard candidates using real-time employment data.
Before employment information can be issued to an individual, it’s important to verify their identity first, to ensure the right details end up in the right hands. That’s where we come in.
Through our partnership with Konfir and as the first certified IDSP, employers can request identity and employment history for individuals simultaneously. Individuals begin by choosing to verify their identity online or through the Yoti or Post Office EasyID app. Once we’ve verified their identity, Konfir will then provide their employment history activities as verified credentials.
Typically, sensitive employment data is captured and shared in an unsecure way via email, PDF or on phone calls. With Konfir and Yoti, HR teams can spend less time manually checking documents, which not only saves time but also improves security. Individuals always consent to share their identity and employment data, giving them greater control and transparency over what information is shared with companies.
Konfir is the latest company to embrace the power of digital identity checks. Since the government adjusted the way Right to Work checks could be completed, the recruitment industry and employers are enjoying the flexibility digital checks allow at scale. Yoti and Post Office, the first certified digital identity service provider, are proud to be delivering digital identity checks for companies up and down the country.
