Arsenal Football Club Renews FM Contract With Mitie

18 August 2023

Mitie’s security vetting contract with Arsenal Football Club has been extended for a further five years.

Mitie will continue to provide vetting services including background checks, criminal records checks and Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks for the club.

Arsenal places a strong emphasis on employee security and safety and requires stringent background checks on current and prospective employees. As part of the contract, Mitie’s vetting business, Procius, will undertake a suite of vetting services underpinned by its bespoke vetting technology platform, MyCheck™.

The technology will help Arsenal to carry out background checks including digital identity verification, CV and right-to-work checks, as well as verifying employment and education history.

Jason Towse, Managing Director, Business Services, Mitie, said: “As a market-leading vetting services provider, we’re proud of our great relationship with a football club of Arsenal’s stature. We’re looking forward to continuing to provide exceptional vetting services backed by our smart technology solutions.”
