We have developed a comprehensive portfolio of tried and tested courses to assist life science organisations in recognising animal rights threats and to enable life science hirers to develop and hone skills to enhance the hiring and screening process. It is important to hire the very best people but it is also important to be able to sift out undesirable candidates and to develop a tool-kit of hiring and screening processes that reduce the chances of hiring a bad apple.
Our team have trained over 6,000 people worldwide and our courses are presented by people who have worked in the research sector, who have had personal experience of the threats facing biomedical research. They are also trained facilitators and so the courses provide a positive learning experience, group exercises and an enjoyable (memorable) training experience.
Our free Security in Recruitment e-learning module was developed in conjunction with the Medical Research Council and Support4rs and it is aimed at individuals working within, and recruiting for, the pharmaceutical and biomedical research industry. Whilst it is UK based there are many useful and interactive resources for people wherever they work in the world within the research sector. The course has been designed to be completed on-line in around 30 minutes, it looks at threats to research organisations, issues in the recruitment and screening processes, activist groups and their tactics, infiltration risks, social engineering and ways to reduce these threats.

An interactive course providing exercises and lots of anecdotal examples of tactics used in the past by Animal Rights groups in relation to the environment (why there is an issue), Security systems (how systems can help respond to the environment), social engineering of information, issues relating to risks to facilities and communications (current and past AR tactics) and People issues (infiltrator tactics and the development of practical awareness measures that individuals can take).

This course concentrates on preventing infiltration and looks at advertising strategies, review of application forms and CVs, interviewing and finally through to spotting an infiltrator. Having profiled many of the most prominent infiltrations we use “actual” infiltration materials to reinforce the messages. Using a 3 stage process to highlight the key recruitment, background screening and post hires issues. For more information view the course overview.
The purpose of the programme is to provide attendees with professionally delivered modules to complement existing recruitment interviewing and security awareness skills. Three new one day courses have been developed to reflect the nature of changing threats and other publicly available regulations, legal updates, cases studies and guidance sources.
