A message from the CEO, Mathew Armstrong

Mathew Armstrong

When we launched giant screening, I wanted to put my 15 years of experience in the background checking industry and the extensive experience of the team to work by creating a new vision of what background checking should be. I didn’t want us to be just another background checking company but one that truly does things differently and most importantly the way our clients require it to be done.

Over the years, we have developed the service into something that addressed all of the challenges companies felt when outsourcing their background checking and pre-employment screening.

We are proud to say we are the UK’s fastest-growing background checking company and we have done that by following the 3 pillars of our philosophy from day 1, customer 1st, cutting-edge technology, and exceptional operational support.

The truly flexible way we deliver our service has driven constant innovation both from within our own business and through the requirements of our clients. This approach means we are now trusted by organisation from SMEs up to the country's largest employers, not just in the UK but globally.

Are we the best background checking company in the market? We think so and so do our clients. Are we the best we can be... ofcourse not, and I think that is the mistake many in our industry make. We will never be the best we can be because we will always be innovating and driving to deliver more and better for our clients.

If you are reading this and you are not one of our clients, then get in touch and find out how background checking should really be delivered.

Thanks, Mat
