Background Check and Background Search UK

Background checks in the UK have become increasingly popular over recent years. This is because more and more companies and individuals have realised how valuable the insights that come from these checks are.

Whether these checks are completed for personal or business reasons, they can lead to people making smarter and better-informed decisions. They also help to ensure security, whether you are working in government, business, education or doing a check for personal reasons in the UK.

For example, a school might wish to run a background check on a new employee to check they do not have a criminal record, i.e. a history of child or drug abuse.

Landlords may also wish to vet prospective tenants to see if they have a history of trouble or non-payment of rent. Some families will even employ a background check or background search service to ensure their daughter’s new boyfriend is respectable and trustworthy.

How Can We Help with UK Background Checks and Background Searches?

Background checks in the UK are incredibly important in this day and age due to the amount of fraudulent behaviour we are up against. Our background reports will not only give you peace of mind, but they will also help you prove or deny someone is indeed who or what they say they are.

We will deliver reliable, complete and current information having complied with all regulations and legalities, such as the Data Protection Act (DPA). We understand how crucial it is to have reliable background information so our team will always strive to offer you unparalleled levels of service.

Background Requests

As investigators, we are also regularly contacted by clients who are concerned their spouse may be being unfaithful. Whilst a UK background search might not seem like the most relevant course of action, they can actually be very useful in uncovering previous infidelity and the webs of lies that are often told to trusting partners.

Our UK background searches delve into a person’s identifying data, starting with their name and address and leading on from there. We are very thorough in our investigations, so you can be assured you will receive an accurate and complete investigation of their history. You can be assured our service is one of the most comprehensive in the industry and we can provide you with details on the following:

  • Current address & phone number
  • Recent address history
  • Birthdate
  • Aliases/maiden name
  • Property ownership
  • Bankruptcies & County Court judgments
  • Information on known relativesBackground Checks - Global Investigations
  • Roommates & neighbour information
  • Personal assets
  • Marriages & divorces
  • Businesses; live and failed
  • Press, media and internet history
  • Previous address and linked address searches
  • Employment and career history
  • Professional capabilities

Understanding & Confident Professionals

As professional private investigators, we are well aware of what information is available and how to provide you with an accurate, detailed background check, no matter where the subject of the investigation resides or how well they think their past has been hidden. We also understand how important it is to be discreet and not let on to the subject they are being investigated and that you are involved.

You can therefore be assured of our confidentiality and professionalism. We undertake a background check in the UK ourselves, unlike many other agencies who tend to outsource this work. We are 100% committed to our cases and ensuring the information we find is accurate. We, therefore, take great care to ensure the information is verified by different and trusted sources, so we can be 100% certain everything is correct.

Working with a Company You Can Fully Trust!

We know you have serious concerns and need to be able to trust in the information we provide. We can therefore assure you our UK background searches are undertaken by our professional private investigators who are based here in the UK and, if overseas, are alongside our respected and trusted foreign affiliations. You will probably have seen many sites on the internet (mainly USA registered) offering “Comprehensive UK background check services” at very cheap rates.

However, please be advised these services are, more often than not, nothing more than poor databases searches. The information is normally out of date and quite often inaccurate, so please make sure you have done your research/investigation before spending any money with such a company.

Cost Is Always on a Case by Case Basis

The cost of a background search in the UK is worked out on a purely individual, case by case basis. This is because no case is ever the same and the amount of work undertaken can vary greatly from job to job. We will work out your costs after analysing exactly what you require, how much work we will have to do and the area and country we will work the case from.

Background checking can offer peace of mind by providing evidence that somebody is telling the truth about their employment history, criminal record and various other aspects.

At Global Investigations, we specialise in discreet, comprehensive searches which include a criminal record check, employee background checks, and employee criminal background checks as part of a thorough background checking process.

A Criminal Record Check Offers Reassurance

Companies and organisations often approach Global Investigations to perform a criminal record check on current or prospective employees. This is to ensure they have been truthful during the application phase. Particularly in roles which require handling of delicate materials or large amounts of money, or when working in roles of high responsibility. A criminal record check is performed with discretion and can help put your mind at ease if you suspect an employee may have withheld some vital information.

Employee Criminal Background Checks for Peace of Mind

Our expert team has performed many employee background checks, and we can help you get the answers you need. Our employee background checks are designed to provide an accurate account of the subject’s recorded history, to allow for a truthful representation which may or may not correlate with the information they provided upon application.

If you are considering employee background checks which focus mainly on employment history or full employee criminal background checks, contact our team for further information and advice. Of course, background checking is not simply restricted to employee background checks and employee criminal background checks.

We also cater to personal requests for domestic checking whenever specific situations arise. For example, somebody may begin dating a person who provokes suspicions in other family members. In this instance, background checking or a criminal record check may be desirable to ensure peace of mind and discover whether there is any justification for these suspicions.

As always, Global Investigations will perform checks with the utmost professionalism, discretion and consideration. We have a respectable reputation for our diverse services, with a wealth of positive testimonials available for perusal on our site.

Comprehensive Background Checking

As professional private investigators, we can provide a detailed selection of information on a person’s history, including employment, residency and criminal records. We research information ourselves and verify it from a range of sources to maintain the highest levels of accuracy. When you choose Global Investigations, you are guaranteed professionalism, honesty and a dedication to getting the results you need.
