Criminal Records Checks

Full Criminal Background Checks on Potential Employees

When hiring a new employee, there are a number of things your company needs to take into account. Skills, experience and attitude should always be considered, but it's important that you don't neglect to carry out a criminal record search on your potential new recruit.

HireRight can deliver a range of criminal record searches across the globe, and is fully registered with Disclosure and Barring Service, Disclosure Scotland and Access NI to provide full UK criminal record searches. Details of the fees and prices for UK Disclosure checks can be accessed here.

Don't Take the Risk – Safeguard Your Organisation

In some roles, such as financially regulated work or working with vulnerable groups, a criminal check is a legal requirement. But more businesses across the country are performing regular background checks regardless of the role.

Conducting a criminal record search allows you to make an educated decision on the suitability of a candidate. Even if a crime does not automatically disqualify the applicant, you'll be best placed to make a decision on whether their criminal background could cause undue risk to your business.

Key Benefits
