Why Personnel Checks?

Many times, requesting a DBS Check it something that you must do, not something you want to do. It’s a complicated area of legislation and the checks cost a lot of money. This means the initial purchase of a DBS can be nerve-wracking if you’re unfamiliar.

We pride ourselves on being one of the best DBS Umbrella Bodies in the UK. Striving to always provide our customers with a seamless service. But why should you trust us with your money? What do we have to offer?

Below we’ve covered some of the key areas that make us a great provider for all your employment screening needs.


We’re a one-stop solution for employment-screening.

We aren’t a one-trick pony.

While we started with DBS Checks, we weren’t satisfied with that as the only offering. Our wide range of services mean we can tailor screening solutions for your organisation. Some of our other products include:

  • DVLA Checks
  • Adverse Financial Checks
  • Media Checks
  • Sanctions Checks
  • International Criminal Record Checks
  • And many more...


We do a lot of checks

This might sound like a bit of a childish boast so let us explain how this benefits you.

In practice, this means that our team has a wealth of practical experience dealing with the background screening industry. Out of the 992 registered bodies out there, we rank 14th by volume of DBS check submissions.

Only 14th, you say? It’s true that we don’t submit the most checks, but that’s never been our aim. We don’t want to be the biggest umbrella body, we want to be the best.

Our purpose is to provide a 5 star service and seamless checking experience for our clients. The fact that we process fewer checks than others just means that we have more time to spend looking after you. Something that’s often lacking in larger corporations.


We’re at the forefront of our niche

Our knowledge doesn’t just stem from processing lots of checks. No. We are very active in the industry and intend to keep it that way.

Personnel Checks are members of the Criminal Records Trade Body (CRTB) with our MD sitting as vice-chair of the board. The CRTB is a UK-based trade body that works with and lobbies government to update and refine practices.

Our involvement means we stay up to date with any changes of practice or legislation. In real terms, meaning your business can adapt to changes sooner rather than later.


We deliver 5-star customer service

We’ve said, our aim is to be the best DBS Umbrella Body and this is one step on our journey. Personnel Checks are the one and only DBS Umbrella body to have achieved a 5-star rating on Trustpilot.

One of our companies core values is to go the extra-mile for our customers. Every member of our team strives to do this on a daily basis. Making a difference in someones day is a real motivator. Whether that’s solving someone’s confusion about DBS legislation or helping them log in to their application, it doesn’t matter.

Delivering a service that is so well-received is a source of great pride for our team. The reviews we get are a constant reminder that the work we put in is all worth it.


Management understand

Many corporate bosses are so far removed from the day to day operations of the company that they are out of touch altogether. This isn’t the case with us.

It’s not unusual to see senior managers in our business spending a couple of weeks in the operations team working alongside our admins and customer service reps. Or even just jumping on a call if the lines are busy. It’s a beneficial experience for all our staff.

Engaging directly with customers means management know how things work. Business decisions are made with our day-to-day processes in mind and ease of use for our customers. Nothing is added to our service without being thoroughly tried and tested by every member of the team.
