CRC checks are offered subject to job role or specific legal requirements and are a key indicator of candidate suitability.
As an official registered body we are authorised to process and countersign UK criminal record checks (Basic, Standard and Enhanced). We work with our clients to assess the appropriate level of disclosure, giving consideration to both the responsibilities of the role and applicable exemptions under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act. We also assist our clients in navigating the maze of processes and procedures associated with international criminal record checks, providing country specific guidance on turnaround times, application forms, levels of disclosure and methods of result communication.
In addition to assessing suitability employers have a legal obligation to confirm candidate eligibility for UK employment.
Our R2W solution helps employers meet UK Border Agency regulations by providing verification of identity and travel documents. With each country using complex passport security features, the responsibility of identifying counterfeit documents presents a significant challenge for employers. R2W is an internet based application which enables employers to instantly establish passport authenticity and prevent illegal working. Available either as a stand alone service or integrated into our PES model, R2W provides employers with a â€œstatutory excuseâ€? under Section 8 of the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996.

Our PRI division uses specialist research expertise and tools to offer enhanced company and individual screening.
With greater emphasis on in-country, media and online sources, PRI analysts conduct a thorough review of records in the public domain. Extensive cross-referencing, result analysis, match classification and escalated enquiries are used to generate in-depth reports which include detailed analyst summaries, observations and recommendations. The potential applications of this service are wide ranging: from AML / KYC and executive appointments to fund manager and supplier screening. It can also be used to build further intelligence where ‘red flag’ issues or inconclusive findings are identified following standard PES checks.
It is impossible to over-estimate the importance of effective recruitment to the overall success of a business.
A robust PES process helps mitigate these risks by giving companies confidence in the quality and integrity of their candidates. Checks are used to confirm a candidate’s identity, qualifications and professional experience. Enquiries focus on identifying discrepancies and anomalies which may influence the hiring decision: from undisclosed bankruptcy and adverse employment references, to falsification of qualifications and unexplained gaps in activity. Recognising that every company and industry applies PES differently, we have developed a flexible suite of services which can be offered in isolation or used to generate customised screening levels. These services are increasingly applied as part of an ongoing employee monitoring policy and to all levels of recruitment: from entry level to FSA regulated roles.
Approach Our systems reflect our knowledge of the technical elements of screening. Our personalised approach to result analysis, candidate experience and account management recognises that every candidate, client and screening outcome is different. Flexibility and initiative from us is crucial. Specialisation is at the core of our business, underpinned by an inherent belief that accountability and ownership are key. Distinct role types focus on specific areas and each report is managed by a dedicated analyst. Every client has a single point of contact and the entire process is seamlessly bound together by the underlying system. We demand the highest levels of report completeness and quality without compromising turnaround time or personal touch. Close monitoring and measurement at every stage results in a more consistent and accurate solution more proactively delivered.
Our solution is different because we fundamentally believe screening is a science as well as a skill 9
People As a dynamic and growing business we pride ourselves on our ability to attract ambitious and highly capable individuals. Each Vero employee makes a unique contribution combining skills, knowledge and expertise with a strong work ethic. This work ethic is defined by integrity, conscientiousness and attention to detail; it is fundamental to our culture. Â Our clients trust us to collaborate with them at a sensitive stage of the recruitment process and we see ourselves as an extension of their business. Our highly personal approach has at its core a genuine desire to ensure a positive candidate and client experience from the first point of contact through to the satisfactory conclusion of our enquiries.
We value the relationship that exists between Vero, the Client and the Candidate and take pride in reinforcing this at every opportunity Amy Pain, Client Services, Vero

Successful client relationships are built on trust, transparency and putting the client at the heart of what we do Rebecca Hickmott, Client Services Director, Vero
Delivery Because we collaborate closely at every stage, our clients have confidence in our ability to run the screening process smoothly while they concentrate on other aspects of recruitment. The end result is the timely and successful on-boarding of their candidates. We pride ourselves on being flexible, highly responsive and routinely exceeding expectations. By listening to our clients we are able to provide a fully outsourced solution which vastly reduces their administrative and financial burden. Our solution is based on open communication, mutual trust and clear objectives. We also place great importance on our ability to resolve issues swiftly and successfully, using feedback to further refine and improve our process. From implementation to report production, our ambition is to assess and respond to the needs of individual clients. This is driven by an awareness that each client applies background screening in a different context and that diverse processes, policies and risk factors need to be taken into account at every step.
Vero’s intuitive systems proactively drive our screening process allowing our skilled analysts to focus on the areas in which they add most value: data investigation and analysis. Our in-house development capability supports our inherently entrepreneurial culture and is one of our most dynamic resources. Lateral thinking and technical ability enable us to constantly advance the speed, accuracy and user friendliness of our services: technical solutions to operational issues. We have a proven record of successful integration with client systems and processes. Our online platform ‘VeroLive’ guarantees maximum client visibility: from real-time access and full audit trails, to detailed management information.

VeroGlobal Country by country we have taken the time to examine and document the different approaches required so that we operate in harmony with local culture and within the limitations of local legislation. We took a strategic decision very early on to operate out of a single-site UK location and bring all the required skills, resources and capabilities under one roof. This decision was part of our commitment to delivering outstanding client service and maintaining strict controls around data protection. Our in-house local language capabilities combined with our unique knowledge management system VeroPoint, flexible working pattern and time-zone intelligent workflow enable us to provide comprehensive support: negotiating the cultural and operational complexities of global background screening while observing local legislation and best practice..
Context is crucial often the data omitted is as important as the information provided 18
