Background checks for yourself
If you are looking for a new job you can expect potential employers to want a simple or comprehensive background check performed on you. Different employers will want to know different things about you. There are several reasons why employers use background checks for pre-employment screening.
Employers need to be very careful about who they hire since hiring lawsuits are occurring more often. If an employee’s action hurts another individual then the employer may be liable. Therefore, the employer will want to check your past for any red flags that might tell them you are a risk to their company and that role.
Recent events have increased the need for thorough pre-employment screening. For instance, the events of September 11th 2001 have increased the need for thorough screening and identity verifications. New applicants and long-term employees are being asked to check their names on Sanctions Lists and Wanted Files following the terrorist attacks.
Some people have also found that they are constantly confused by applicants and their previous records and are mindful that something or someone could be holding them back from gaining further recognition or from further enhancement in their careers.
What we do
Our background checks will look into your personal identifying data, beginning with address and identity. Whatever your reason you can be assured of an accurate and complete investigation into your history. You can also be assured that our background check is one of the most comprehensive in the industry. All our searches are completed and investigated by our senior Investigators and will contain as much relevant information to help you see what your record holds.
As professional researchers we know what information is available and how to provide you with an accurate background check no matter where you reside, whether here in the UK or almost anyway else in the world. However well you think your past is hidden we will be able to recover what we as data providers can see.
Criminal background checks can be provided and we will help you to apply for yours. Criminal background checks are required by law in the UK when the job involves small children and working with the elderly.
You may feel that you don't have anything to hide and therefore are not overly concerned. However, running a background check on you can reveal undesirable information and a detailed check might contain information that is irrelevant. It may contain a credit error or a CCJ registered to you at an address you were unaware of or it may be that you are getting particularly uninspiring references from a previous job.
All may be right but equally it may be just outright wrong. Some information may even be illegal to use when being considered for a job. Therefore, you may want to order your own personal background check so that you know what it contains and you will be prepared to face your potential employers. If it contains negative information you may be able to explain what has happened.
