  • Government departments like the Home Office and regulators like Ofsted choose to invest in eBulkPlus to undertake mandatory pre-employment checks for civil servants and temporary staff working within the government.
  • Schools and Early Years providers who have a statutory duty to perform pre-employment screening of staff, including verifying the identity of applicants, their right to work and criminal record.
  • Retailers who need bulk screening for seasonal or scale-up hires to verify individuals’ financial, criminal, and social media history.
  • NHS trusts who need to ensure those with access to patients and their data, controlled substances and intellectual property have been rigorously vetted.
