BACKGROUND SEARCH UK
Background check investigations in the UK are becoming increasingly popular amongst the public and throughout the last decade. The valuable information that is gleaned from these checks are starting to hold true to organisations and individuals who now see its true worth. Whether these searches are conducted for personal or corporate reasons, they ultimately allow the user to make smarter, better and informed decisions on a broad range of subjects. With the addition of fraud on the rise, it also allows for increased security for individuals who operate in business, education or government within the UK.

BACKGROUND CHECK INVESTIGATOR PACKAGES
It’s an unavoidable truth: on first meeting an individual, you have no source of information about them other than what they choose to tell you. This holds true for potential business partners, tenants, life partners, company employees, and those employed in particularly sensitive positions such as housekeepers and care providers for the young and elderly.
Our detailed background checks provide you with all the information you require to take an informed decision on your situation. Whether you are looking to recruit new staff and need employment screening checks, or perhaps you have entered into a new relationship but are suspicious of a past criminal record, we can help you to uncover the truth behind any person. We operate throughout the United Kingdom and abroad, so it does not matter where the subject is currently living, or has resided in the past.

HOW DO BACKGROUND CHECKS WORK?
At UK Private Investigators, our main concerns are comprehensive, accurate background checks and your complete satisfaction. We work on the timeline that you request, and once a deadline is agreed upon, we guarantee that it will be met — the vast majority of our cases are reported within 24-48 hours. A personally assigned private investigator will discuss the requirements of your background check beforehand, and at the investigation’s completion we provide a detailed report that includes the sources of the information and, whenever possible, documentary evidence to substantiate the data.
As we do not simply search online and in public records to gather our evidence and data, we take take to ensure we fully investigate any areas you are particularly interested in, from criminal records, to employment history, to court appearances and any financial history such as bankruptcies and insolvencies which may be hidden through the years. Our extensive background checks are so much more than a simple people search! It is illegal for anyone to access bank accounts without the express permission of the account holder or a Court Order. As such, we do not offer this service.
Frequently Asked Questions
BACKGROUND CHECK Q&A
There are various things that can disqualify you from a background check. Extensive criminal history, false claims on your resume, poor credit history, poor previous employer review or even driving-related issues.
Generally speaking, a background check may show identity verification, employment verification, credit history, driver's history, criminal records, education confirmation, and more
The background check is just credit and criminal history. The only big things from a criminal perspective that will disqualify you are felonies or crimes involving ethics/dishonesty, theft, embezzlement, etc.
The problem with many apparently “free” background checks is that they rely on simply gathering information from the public records – they are essentially just searching the internet for that person and any information which appears. You will not generate any meaningful information from these companies which you cannot get yourself.
Most employers will run some form of background check on their new staff – this could be pre interview or afterwards before they offer a job. Depending on the type of employment, they may be more rigorous than others, so it important that you declare any trace of criminal convictions, court cases or bankruptcies on your application!
