Your International
Background Screening
Questions Answered

We cannot conduct any checks without first getting the explicit consent of the candidate in question. If the candidate is not willing to provide consent, then we cannot proceed.

Depending on the level and detail of screening and availability of referees, we aim to return completed UK reports within 3 to 10 working days. Some basic identity, UK credit checks and Basic DBS checks can be completed within 24 hours. International reports may take a little longer and the turnaround times will vary between countries.

A background check is a process where an individual’s personal, educational, employment, and criminal history records are reviewed and verified to assess their suitability for a particular purpose. It is commonly performed by employers to evaluate an individual’s trustworthiness, qualifications, and potential risks.

Yes. You can track the progress of reports 24/7 using our real time candidate tracker, which provides details of checks being carried out and the present status. Simply log into your account and click on the name of the relevant candidate. Any negative results are always reported directly to you.

Costs may vary according to the background checks required please contact us to discuss your individual requirements. We have no hidden costs, no setup fees and only charge for what we actually check.

It is for some industries and job roles. Our team is able to advise you on which checks must be undertaken in order for your company to adhere to legislation and remain compliant. For any employer in the UK, a Right to Work check is mandatory – you must ensure that a new employee is eligible to work in the UK. We can help you with this with our document validation service.

We are experts in obtaining references. Our experienced team is able to undertake this work on your behalf, requesting references and swiftly following up the request to ensure it is returned in a timely fashion. This offers a huge time saving benefit to your busy HR department who can then devote their time to other business issues rather than the time consuming job of chasing references.

We perform a variety of checks including pre-employment screening, education and qualification checks, credit checks, criminal records checks and much more. We are able to advice on which checks would be most appropriate for your organisation. Please see our full list of services.
