From a family business to industry leaders – our story
uCheck was started as – and remains – a family business. It was founded by husband and wife Mike and Julie Griffiths, who made it their mission to make it quicker and easier for employers to get DBS and other pre-employment checks for their employees. They created a revolutionary HR Platform that allows businesses to perform various checks in one place – and uCheck was born.
Today, uCheck is the largest DBS umbrella body in the UK, providing online solutions to over 30,000 organisations. With 17 years’ experience, our team are proud to be considered experts in the field of vetting and screening and thanks to our diligence, uCheck is now an approved supplier on the Government Digital Marketplace.
uCheck is recognised by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS – formerly the Criminal Record Bureau) as a top Responsible Organisation for Basic Checks and a Registered Umbrella Body for Standard and Enhanced Checks.
- Rapid. Our simple online Platform allows employers to request checks in minutes, track progress and results via our app and get real-time reporting – saving both time and money when compared to conventional checking methods. Our team of experts can advise on a range of services including DBS, Identity, Adverse Credit and Right to Work Checks. This expertise has allowed the uCheck brand name to become a synonym for efficiency, with Enhanced DBS checks typically turned around in as little as 48 hours (our record is 61 minutes!).
- Trusted. uCheck is proud to be a registered Crown Commercial Service (CSS) provider. As a recognised Responsible Organisation and Registered Body, uCheck is accountable for upholding the DBS terms and conditions and meeting Government processing standards.
