Hiring new employees can be a daunting prospect when the reputation of your business and your customers are your livelihood. Knowing more about who you hire, such as electronic proof of their identity, criminal record information and adverse financial history, can give you the confidence you need that you are employing the right person.
Why should I background check my candidates?
Confirming the identity of people who you are considering employing, as well as checking their criminal record and credit history, can help you make a more informed hiring decision. A background checking report on your candidates can be important to help you minimise your risk and protect your business.

Screening for a job involves checking a job applicant’s background to confirm they are who they say they are, that they have the qualifications and experience they claim to have, and that they are legally allowed to work in the UK. Screening can also include credit history checks as well as personal and professional references, so you can better understand their strengths, weaknesses and character.
The aim of screening for a job is to help you find the perfect employee for a role and so you can hire with confidence. Background checks are also important for re-screening existing employees, so you can be confident they are still suitable their roles as their circumstances and their job changes. Our pre-employment reference and right to work checks help you conduct this crucial vetting much more quickly, simply and cost-effectively than manual processes, which are time consuming.
Pre-employment checks help you work out whether a job applicant is the most suitable candidate for a particular role and that they have all the necessary qualifications and skills to do the job well. These checks not only verify whether a candidate has told the truth on his CV, they can fill in gaps and give you a deeper sense of whether they are trustworthy and reliable. Pre-employment checks also help you confirm whether they are physically capable of the work and that they are legally allowed to work in the UK.
Checking a job applicant’s employment and personal references manually can be extremely time consuming and can significantly add to the time it takes to make a hiring decision. Some employers cannot spare the resources to chase references extensively or thoroughly. Outsourcing pre employment screening to a third party is therefore an efficient and cost-effective solution. Our personal reference checks take no more than 10 days.
Confirming whether a candidate is legally entitled to work in the UK can be costly and time consuming. You need to make sure your results are accurate, up to date and in line with immigration codes of practice and regulations. Our right to work tools can validate a candidate’s documents and confirm their right to work in the UK in seconds.
As an employer, you need to analyse a wide range of information about a candidate before you decide whether they are perfect for the role. Our background checks provide a detailed history and understanding of an individual’s background, including their identity, education, employment history, credit history and any relevant criminal record information. The results of our background checks allow you to review any inconsistent or adverse information you should be aware of and fill in gaps on a CV before you employ them.
