Background checks 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 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.

For organisations, it is important to ensure that you are making the right decision when it comes to hiring a new employee. By not conducting a background screening check or determining if a new employee has any criminal activity on their file puts you and your business at risk from a broad range of activities that you may not desire. Best to take a look at your own Privacy Policy. Likewise, for mortgage companies and financial services, we can provide fair credit reporting, conviction records, court records, driving records in order to provide a full breakdown of your consumers to give you a full background screening record.

Obviously you can add ANYTHING else to the list (enhanced background check only) when you instruct us to proceed and these additional checks will be FREE of CHARGE unless advised otherwise.

Background checks can be utilised to obtain a broad range of information from an individual. Whether it’s use for financial services, court records, arrest records or require that extra peace of mind that the person who you’re dealing with is the right one, then contact us today.

Background Checks for Employers

With our background check service, you can find out everything about a potential employee or director without ever having to give them any personal information. Our data and tools will provide the insight necessary for making an informed decision on who should be part of your team - so all it takes is one short conversation with our team of investigators!
Hiring the wrong person could do more than just risk internal fraud or income loss - it's also a matter of business reputation. Background checks don't have to be difficult, time-consuming and costly; with assistance from UK Private Investigators, due diligence is easy.
The person you’re about to hire may not be who they say on their resume. A potential candidate providing fraudulent identification could cause your DBS criminal check, which is designed for checking whether someone has been convicted of a crime and should therefore never pass through it without serious issues - especially since there are many ways that people can have valid reasons why obtaining one would benefit them personally in some way (for example if certain disabilities prevent holding an actual job). Social media accounts often reflect real life behaviour; seeing what's going on inside someone’s head will give insight into how trustworthy or unreliable he/she might turn out being when hired!

Frequently Asked Questions

Commonly Asked Questions

    • You have an extensive criminal history. ...
    • You lied on your resume. ...
    • Your credit history is poor. ...
    • Your driving record revealed issues. ...
    • A previous employer gave you a bad review

    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!
