Right to work / including fraudulent passport checks

Failure to conduct proper RTW checks that adhere strictly to national guidelines could result in you, the employer being penalised and could put the wider business at risk. Our RTW service, which includes an Amberhill level identification process, accesses governmental and public databases to ensure every candidate screened is safe and legal to work in the UK.

Address verification

This is a standard but essential screening process that many employers are required to undertake. Our integrations with national databases allow us to search any property in the UK and identify the current occupant. Any unverified properties, or properties with no listed occupant will be flagged for secondary verification.

Employment history / referencing

Attaining verified past employment references from candidates can be a time-consuming project for an employer to undertake. However, our team of screening specialists, twinned with our market-leading technology platform allows us to implement swift and verified referencing processes that will ensure every candidate’s employment history is represented truthfully.

Educational / professional accreditation checks

We understand that for many employers offering specialised roles, ensuring that the candidate possesses the right educational level / professional qualification is essential for the hiring process. Our database allows us to verify a candidates highest educational and professional qualification then cross-reference those with your specific requirements. This means that every candidate put forward will have the exact qualifications required for the role.

Fraud checks

For those employers specialising in the banking and finance sectors, ensuring that a candidate has no fraudulent or illegal financial history is often essential.  Our integration with the National Fraud Database enables us to accurately identify any history of fraud on an individual. This allows you to make safe hiring decisions that will benefit the wider business.

Basic, standard and enhanced criminal record checks

Our criminal record screening processes are fully integrated with the Disclosure Scotland, Access NI and UK DBS databases. With this extensive data we can identify any individual’s criminal history including convictions, cautions and reprimands. We cover every level of DBS check and can provide bespoke checks for employers with more specific requirements.

National / international credit checks

Our credit check processes are designed to facilitate every search level, from basic to enhanced credit history searches. Our team of screening experts will identify a wide variety of adverse credit history including any: IVA’s, CCJ’s, bankruptcies, defaults and account arrears. We can provide more granular checks based on data provided by the CIAS, this allows us to produce a full holistic view of a candidates past and current financial and credit records.

Sanctions checks

We use over 2,000 data sources to identify any current and historical sanctions a candidate may have against them. Our processes are in line with the guidelines set by the UK Sanctions Regime and include integrations with some of the largest sanction databases across the world.

Social media checks

Social media is playing an increasingly important role in the hiring process for many employers. Our dedicated team run comprehensive social media checks on candidates to ensure their activity in no way could jeopardise your company’s image / reputation. Our checks also provide employers with a more personal and accurate impression of their candidates.

Our processes include: validating driving licenses, identifying points on license and any driving offences, including impaired driving and speeding charges.
