Background checks for Government & Defence

Civil service pre-employment checks are a mandatory requirement for public servants and temporary staff working within the government. 

All government employees need to be screened to the Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS) as a minimum to verify identity and prevent illegal working, reputational harm and other risks stemming from unsuitable employees. This baseline screening is also required to begin further vetting for higher levels of security clearance under National Security Vetting (NSV).  

Security Watchdog offers:

  • Over ten years of experience in vetting for some of the largest defence firms within the UK
  • Extensive experience delivering vetting to the BPSS standard for the private sector and List X contractors
  • Rapid screening solutions for partial or complete vetting to enable swift onboarding of new joiners
  • A simplified platform covering all the steps of the pre-employment screening journey
