Employment screening

Our range of international employment screening and vetting services serve to mitigate the risk of your business employing individuals with an undesirable background while also improving the efficiency of your recruitment and selection process. Every year, our Security Watchdog team carries out over 1 million checks for over 1000 clients, including more than 10% of the FTSE100. We can check your candidates and employees globally using our automated technology which offers you full visibility of screening progress in real time.  We offer anything from basic checks to the highest level of security clearance in 24 languages.

We are registered as an umbrella body of the Disclosure and Barring Service. We can carry out criminal record checks on behalf of third parties along with both standard and enhanced disclosures for you. Our online Disclosure Scotland system also offers quick and cost-efficient basic disclosure checks.

Our tailored software package, e-Bulk, can help save you money and improve overall efficiency, with optimum turnaround times. It’s easier and quicker than paper-based checking and can handle any number of applications.

Finally, our Advisory Bureau, the consultancy arm to our outsourced employment screening service, can offer immigration consultancy services, identity and right to work training, plus due diligence services via a team of experienced auditors in all industry sectors.
