Who is uCheck

The story behind one of the UK’s leading employment screening businesses

Our History

Our journey so far

Starting as a small family business, we quickly became one of the UK’s leading employment screening services, working with tens of thousands of businesses and delivering millions of checks to help them make better recruitment decisions.

With our clients in the forefront of our mind whilst developing our growth strategy, we knew it was important to gain some extra firepower. So, in 2022, we teamed up with The Citation Group to allow us to offer a broader set of high-quality products and services whilst also getting investment in our own technology. In fact, we’ve been able to invest close to £1m to improve our technology since working with them!

2023 saw another exciting development for us. As part of The Citation Group, we acquired another fantastic background screening business, Disclosure Services. For our clients to benefit the most from our services, we’ve joined forces to assemble a stronger and greater uCheck. This exciting integration has allowed us to combine our experience and technologies to create an even better background screening experience for our clients.

And that takes us to today… With a combined 40 years of experience in the field, 50,000 clients, and millions of checks being delivered annually, we’re proud to be helping our clients make better recruitment decisions with our rapid, trusted, and secure employment screening platform.
