Experian identity checks are a vital starting point for a robust screening process. Completing background checks based on false identity information could prevent you from receiving an accurate report on the candidate, as candidates may provide false details in an effort to conceal adverse information. Identity verification is therefore an important first step for any background check.
About the check
The Experian identity checking service is designed to make pre employment screening as simple, intuitive and stress-free as possible. And frees up your staff from having to complete time-consuming checks, enabling them to focus their time on other tasks.
Because we have direct access to data sources, we are able to quickly provide clear and concise reports, giving you an efficient, cost-effective pre employment screening solution. When you request a check, we will rapidly compare your candidate’s details against millions of records held in both public and private databases. Our identity checking service draws from the electoral role, almost immediately delivering a score indicating our confidence in the candidate’s identity. We will also check their current address and, if necessary, up to two previous addresses.
Our reports are concise and easy to read, so there is no need to navigate through pages of complex text.
