Formerly referred to as criminal record checks, criminal background and DBS checking services enable safe hiring for any sector. These checks are a legal requirement, and just a single mistake or oversight can lead to hefty fines. It's risky to rely on the human eye alone - especially when handling hundreds or thousands of potential candidates!
