Client testimonials

GBG KYP was head and shoulders above what everybody else was offering, nothing came close.

Admissions Manager

This year, there have been no delays to the applications at all which is completely down to the GBG service

DBS Admissions Officer

We had a large number of Enhanced Disclosures to complete in a short period of time. GBG KnowYourPeople allowed us to efficiently process and track each application through to the DBS; and once complete receive a notification when the Disclosure was completed and whether it contained content or was clear. None of this would have been possible if we were managing the checks on the paper based application forms.

Licensing Manager

The new GBG KnowYourPeople system has made my life so much easier. I can now complete DBS applications twice as fast which has resulted in a much quicker criminal record checking process. GBG KnowYourPeople is the most responsive and user-friendly system I have ever used.

County Welfare Officer

GBG staff are on-hand to support students with both general and technical queries, and provide support to the University regarding general process issues as well as any legislative changes and how they may affect our organisation. Working in partnership with GBG enables us to be better prepared for any process change we need to implement.

Admissions Manager

I have been astounded at the seamless service offered by GBG KnowYourPeople. We are now able to turn checks around within a week, if not quicker, which is crucial for maintaining interest and motivation of potential volunteers. GBG also offers swift and knowledgeable support, which has really helped with the technicalities and legislation changes of the DBS process.

Volunteer Manager

GBG process approximately 15,000 applications for ADIs and PDIs on an annual basis and continue to support applicants prior to the renewal of their registration. We will continue to work with GBG for another year. Our key performance indicators are always achieved, indicating that they deliver a prompt and accurate service to driving instructors.


GBG KnowYourPeople has made the application process a lot simpler for applicants, employers, and the team at Assist HR. One fantastic advantage of the system is our ability to view results, in terms of clear/not clear, before the actual disclosure is dispatched. The system can then also provide us with an official letter confirming the results, which can then be used to speed up the recruitment process.
