Background screening is becoming more common in the UK. The number of UK employers incorporating screening into their recruitment is growing. Employment fraud is growing a lot over the past year this leads to employers to consider the value of pre-employment screening. There is a variety of different checks available for employers, from DBS checks to adverse financial or media checks. A DBS check is an official record stating a person’s criminal convictions. Adverse financial check reveals any serious adverse credit history, so any late or non-payment on a person’s credit history. Media check identifies a candidate’s online presence to look for negative behaviours such as bullying, racism, nudity and excessive bad language.
