Understanding A Criminal Record Check

A Criminal Record check may be more familiar to you under the titles of DBS checks or CRB checks. They investigate a candidate’s criminal history, revealing any record of past convictions, cautions, warnings, reprimands and more - depending on the level of check. Different roles require different levels of Criminal Record checks, so our specialist team can advise you if you are unsure.

Basic, Standard or Enhanced DBS Checks (Available in Bulk or Single)

We conduct a criminal record check as part of our specialized packages, as a bulk service, or as an individual service, meaning we can either conduct any other checks you require alongside the DBS, conduct numerous DBS checks at once, or carry out an individual check for one candidate. There are three levels of checks available - Basic, Enhanced and Standard. If you are not sure which level of check you need, feel free to contact us and one of our well-trained representatives will help you.

We are an umbrella body with the DBS, meaning that we have direct access to initiate, track and obtain the results, and are inspected and audited to check our processes are compliant. Therefore, you can be sure that the service will be as simple and efficient as possible.

We have relationships with both Disclosure Scotland and Access NI, so we can carry out Criminal Record checks for candidates or clients across the UK. Additionally, if you are an employer requiring a check on a candidate from overseas, we offer thorough and fast International Searches from a wide multitude of countries.
