What is an Employment Credit Check?

Employment Credit Checks are a common background check used by employers to determine risk of applicants and employees. These checks can also be referred to as a Financial Probity Report and Adverse Financial Report.

These checks identify information from the past six years, including; current and previous addresses, electoral roll data, bankruptcies, Individual Voluntary Arrangements (IVAs), sequestrations and trust deeds (insolvency data), and County Court Judgments (CCJs).


Eligibility for Employment Credit Checks

Financially regulated employees are required to undergo credit checks prior to employment. However, this type of vetting check is valuable to all sorts of employers from a broad range of industries. That’s because it’s useful when you’re recruiting for a role that’s responsible for managing money.

Employment Credit Checks can be used as a standalone service or along with our other services, including DBS Checks and Identity Checks.
