“Since working with the team at CBS, it has taken a huge burden from the Ecolab HR Team at an exceptionally reasonable cost with very good turnaround times. When I ask that a particular case is given priority, I know this will be done. I trust the judgement of CBS and I know that I would be able to defend any decision I make on employment cases with regards to referencing information. I look forward to a good future working relationship”
Ecolab Ltd

“Having only recently been asked by our clients to obtain CRB checks we are very new to the process and rather unsure which route to take. We chose CBS initially because they offer the option of the employee taking their documents in to the Post Office for Verification. We have sales people scattered all over the UK so this was the ideal option for us. After then deciding on CBS, we were given a friendly and professional service”
Smith & Nephew Endoscopy
