“Having worked alongside VSC on pre-employment background checks for my company since June 2017, I have found them professional, friendly, informative and a team I enjoy communicating and working with. Each query or issue has been answered or resolved quickly and efficiently. Each team member greets you on the phone and is personable and approachable, I don’t even need to explain which company I’m from! A fabulous team to work with.”
Kind Regards, Jo Donnelly

Our company have been using VSC for a number of years, the friendly and professional service we consistently receive from them is excellent. The service they provide is quick, efficient and the screening checks are tailored to our specific needs, which is exactly what our company was looking for to cover our BS7858 security vetting requirements. VSC provide a really personal service, for example, if things at first appearance don’t seem right they’ll call and ask for additional information and evidence rather than take the easy option of simply “failing”, the vetting, which was our experience of previous companies. Their completed screening reports are easy to read and well presented. We would have no hesitation in recommending VSC to other companies.

“Many thanks for this Joey. I’m very happy with your performance and intend to send all future screening business your way”

Simon Cullen
Chief Compliance Officer

I’ve used CheckBack International for security screening on behalf of my clients for nearly a year. I can’t even begin to explain how much simpler the whole process is now, in comparison to doing this in-house. I’ve had the privilege of dealing with Joey personally on several occasions, as well as the VERY competent Nicola Beels in the UK office. My clients in the security industry are safe in the knowledge that they are fully compliant with standards, through the use of CheckBack. I’m happy to recommend Joey and his team at CheckBack.

I just checked status of our first candidate on your system. Very impressed, exactly what I was looking for. Makes the previous company look like they are in the dark ages!

Gary Docherty
Director, Recruitment Services, Goodacre Limited

Thanks for this, This has already proven to be so much more efficient than the F20 form! I really value all of your help as well as that of the screening team. The compliance team and myself are extremely happy to be working with Checkback International.
Thanks again!
