In today's highly publicised, digital environment, public and private sector entities must be more vigilant than ever about the people, suppliers and/or clients they choose to associate themselves with. The role of candidate and commercial background screening and vetting within risk management models is therefore critically important, as any insufficiencies in this regard could lead to significant reputational and/or financial implications.

Our aim is to proactively support our clients’ due diligence and business assurance processes through our technologically advanced solutions and consulting services. Our innovative and secure solutions and services have been developed based on the latest industry best practices and are supported by leading edge screening and vetting technology.

Our broad and expert skills set - supported by highly developed technical proficiency, extensive industry knowledge and a commitment to technological innovation - makes us the expert partner of choice to assess, advise and assist clients with all their candidate and commercial background screening and vetting requirements.

In environments where robust risk management is often a key predictor of business success, the need for organisations to check their people and supplier choices has become critically important. The executive team at MIE not only understand this intrinsically but remain dedicated to building a successful team that is able to support clients in effectively managing their risk through screening and vetting solutions that are not only cutting edge - but enable clients to strengthen their due diligence efforts and verify their choices.
