Joining Checks Direct at a Transformative Time

Lee O'Dwyer reflects on joining the Checks Direct team, recent awards and the future goals of Checks Direct.

The New Directions and Checks Direct Team

It’s been a whirlwind of a first few months as the new Head of Checks Direct. I’m thrilled to be part of the company at such a pivotal moment in its history. Since joining at the end of January, I’ve had the opportunity to meet and work with every department across the business, and it’s easy to see how Checks Direct has become the award-winning solution provider it is today.

Checks Direct has been disrupting the employment screening and background checks industry for almost 10 years, with an award-winning Customer Service Team and cutting-edge technology. This forward-thinking approach hasn’t gone unnoticed; we were recently presented with two prestigious awards at the Cardiff Life Awards – the Best Technology Company and the Platinum Award for Best Company Overall across Wales.

As I said on the night, when I had the honour of accepting these accolades on behalf of everyone involved; these awards are a testament to the hard work, tenacity and ingenuity of the entire Checks Direct team. To be recognised as leaders in technology and as an exemplary company overall by our industry peers is an incredible achievement, and I’m immensely proud to be part of such a pioneering organisation.

I joined Checks Direct at this transformative juncture as the company is rapidly expanding its operations and service offerings. With ambitious growth plans on the horizon, my focus will be on scaling our efforts to match this upward trajectory. This means further investment in our sales and marketing departments as well as ongoing development of our bespoke Client Portal and Management system to ensure we retain our position as market leaders in a highly competitive landscape.

Our recent reinvestment into the business signifies this forward momentum and expanded vision. We have our sights firmly set on becoming the preeminent provider of vetting and background check services nationwide.

It’s an exciting time to be part of Checks Direct. I look forward to steering our strategy during this pivotal phase and introducing even more organisations to our software-enabled, tech-driven solution. The accolades and recognition are motivating and reinforce that we’re on the right track, but this is just the beginning for Checks Direct!
