Verifile develops great rapport with candidates as they go through the screening experience and is known for building long-lasting relationships with clients.  Verifile listens to feedback from clients and customises solutions to individual specifications. Verifile’s experienced and committed management team is also able and very happy to advise clients on best practice and how to achieve the desired results from their background screening programmes


Verifile’s clients are constantly attracting talent from around the world. Many of them are also operating from local offices in different countries. Verifile’s multi-lingual team have been fully vetted themselves and screen candidates with varied international backgrounds with the necessary knowledge and due consideration of local customs, culture and best practice


There are significant differences in terms of the quality and availability of information from country to country. Most commonly, access to criminal and credit information can be restricted or permitted for employment screening purposes by local laws. Verifile has always maintained the very highest ethical and legal standards in terms of the checks offered. Verifile’s research and compliance process is rigorous; ensuring clients do not take unnecessary risks when using background checks as part of their recruitment process. Verifile is ISO 9001 certified.


Verifile’s technology interacts with clients, candidates and sources wherever they are in the world and ensures the best possible quality and turnaround times. Boasting a highly experienced in-house software development team, Verifile continually invests in technology to retain their innovative edge and enables seamless integration with client’s ATS / HRIS platforms.


The Verifile screening platform is linked via API directly to Equifax, to Disclosure Scotland, and to the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) via direct connection to the eBulk service. This means that Verifile’s UK criminal records checks, UK credit reports and UK identity checks are fully automated and that UK credit and identity checks are completed within seconds. Verifile’s processes and system integrations ensure that turnaround times for UK Criminal checks cannot be beaten and consistently deliver the lowest error rate in the industry.


Verifile was amongst the first in the industry to receive ISO 27001 accreditation and is the only background screening provider to have been awarded Cyber Essentials PLUS certification. Servers are hosted and maintained in the UK by Rackspace, a global leader in hosting services. Many of Verifile’s Blue-Chip clients also test the infrastructure annually. The Verifile systems are so robust that they have never experienced any unscheduled downtime but the backups are always ready for any eventuality.


Whether your current screening programme is falling behind your expectations, or you are looking to implement a new Employment Screening Policy, Verifile will customise an effective and well-managed programme for your exact needs with the best turnaround times and competitive prices.
