Global background checks

Every day, all over the world, thousands of companies are performing background checks on their potential candidates through companies such as Security Watchdog. We compile criminal records, personal details, financial records, right to work documentation and more with the aim of ensuring that candidates are safe to be employed in positions of trust, whilst displaying the required level of integrity to succeed in their proposed role.

From criminal record checking of a local football coach to a comprehensive personal and professional check of a company director, background checks are performed at all levels to ensure safety throughout the workplace.

The most common form of background checking is pre employment screening. Often requested by employers on candidates applying for job roles in high risk areas such as airports, government, healthcare, financial institutions and education.

Results of a background check typically include past employment verification, credit history and criminal record history. These checks are often used by employers as a means of judging a candidate's past mistakes, character and to identify potential hiring risks for safety and security reasons.

Security Watchdog know that your business is precious and must be protected against unsuitable candidates. Whether it be criminal record checks or bespoke pre employment screening packages, choosing Security Watchdog as your background checking provider is the smart choice for businesses throughout the UK, Europe and beyond.
