Carrying out criminal record checks is an essential part of the recruitment process. We offer a market leading online service that improves the efficiency, management, and process of criminal record checks - helping you to employ the right people faster, ensuring they have undergone the necessary checks. We specialise in offering tailored solutions which increase efficiency and reduce the costs of completing the checks.

Overseas Criminal Record Checks

Supplementing and complementing our UK service, we offer overseas criminal record checks in over 50 countries around the world.

When recruiting from abroad, hiring a candidate who has lived overseas, or where applicants have not lived in the UK for very long, we provide an international criminal record checking service.

The application process varies significantly between countries, however we can advise on the information available from each country, information requirements, turnaround time, costs and the process that needs to be followed to obtain relevant criminal record checks.
