Our Services

Our vetting services include background checks, criminal records checks and Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks. Our team includes in-house multi-lingual experts to speed up the process of securing references and our market-leading digital platform, MyCheck, ensures you have full visibility and transparency of the screening process, enhancing the candidate experience.

Employment screening

If you work in a regulated sector or wish to protect your business from the risks associated with not knowing if your people are who they say they are, then we can support you.

Including Basic Disclosure and Disclosure and Barring Service Directorship and qualifications checks.

Our online system for criminal records checks makes the process quick and simple, giving you easy access to the information you need through a secure portal. We provide complete online criminal records checks including basic disclosure and standard or enhanced disclosure checks for those working in applicable roles. In addition, we can conduct overseas criminal records checks.

Including passports, right to work and driving license checks, employment & education.

Our suite of verification checks provides you with the peace of mind to know you are making the right hire. On a basic level, this is confirming they are who they claim, by conducting document verification checks on passports and driving licenses. It also means confirming their right to work in the country. On top of that, education and employment checks are a vital part of the verification process to ensure that your potential employee has the skills and experience they claim.

Including credit checks, media, sanction checks, BPSS checks and BS7858.

Should you need more than just verification and criminal records checks, we offer a range of additional vetting services. Our credit check services enable you to see the financial status of a potential hire, which may be useful should they be in a role involving budgeting or money handling. For more senior hires, you may wish to carry out media checks to see if there are any stories in the public domain that could cause reputational harm to your business.

Other popular checks include FCA compliance checks for those in the finance industry, as well as Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS) checks and BS7858 compliant screening for vetting security personnel.

Including airside pass, freight forwarder, overseas criminal record check and counter-terrorist checks.

Since 2003, the aviation industry has been subject to the most rigorous types of background checks outside the government or defence sectors. The continued threat of international terrorism has led to the development of highly complex vetting criteria which all employers across Europe must follow, with national authorities taking a very close interest in issues of compliance or non-compliance.

We have been working in this sector since 2003 and have expertise and technology specifically geared around aviation. We are able to handle large volumes whilst maintaining a speed and quality and have a unique ability to background check for future courses.
