Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA)

First Advantage provides background screening services to businesses in the UK, Europe, Middle East and Africa. Our centre of excellence is located in the historic town of Colchester, north east of London, where we've been performing background checks for over 30 years.

Our range of verifications and database checks give employers the information they need to make informed hiring decisions, by verifying whether the information provided by a candidate is accurate and highlighting relevant information about their history.

Our accurate, timely and objective reports help our clients assess a potential employee's suitability and, in many cases, assist them in meeting legal compliance obligations.
