Pre-employment screening: your checks in our safe hands

Here at uCheck our focus is on ensuring an easy, secure and rapid process for employers requesting pre-employment screening checks.

From the development of our online platform, to our UK-based customer support team, our aim is to assist employers every step of the way. But what exactly are the benefits of using the uCheck system?

Five checks, one tool

uCheck’s revolutionary HR platform allows you to request up to five checks with only one application form. Designed to take the hassle out of pre-employment screening, you can select from a pick ‘n’ mix of screening checks tailored to the requirements of your organisation, and the job role of the candidate.

The checks that are available include:

  • Standard and Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks
  • Basic Disclosure
  • Right to Work
  • Identity
  • Adverse Credit

We have fast average turnaround times for these checks too. Identity, Right to Work, and Adverse Credit checks can have results returned in a matter of minutes. For more comprehensive checks, such as DBS checks, our average turnaround is only 48 hours. Our record is 61 minutes!

All results will be presented in a downloadable PDF for inclusion in your HR files, meaning the results are clear and straightforward to understand.

Automated online system

Using our online pre-employment screening platform means you’ll have less hassle with paper forms, and will avoid postal delays. The automated system ensures all the information required is collected before the submission of the check.

Here at uCheck, as part of the MG Care Group of companies, we are ISO 27001:2017 accredited, meaning that we are compliant with the relevant data protection and security measures. We are also compliant with the requirements of the UK government’s Cyber Essentials scheme, which certifies that we take certain steps to ensure cyber security.

Both of these accreditations mean you can be sure your checks and data are in safe hands.

Our support team

Our UK based support team is available from 8:30am-5:30pm Monday to Friday, via phone, email, or using the live chat facility on our system.

They provide a crucial role in assisting employers throughout the process, not only by providing help and support when needed, but also by countersigning DBS checks.

Their role as countersignatories mean they’re up to date and compliant with legislation, and can help you navigate the tricky minefield that can be DBS eligibility.

Pre-employment screening with uCheck: a summary

As we’ve outlined, uCheck’s system is designed to make the process simple for employers to request their pre-employment screening checks.

These checks form an essential part of the recruitment process by determining an applicant’s suitability for a role.

For mandatory checks, such as DBS or Right to Work, you can be sure you’ll meet your legal compliance responsibilities.
