About CBS, Our Team and
What We Can Do For You

CBS began from very humble beginnings. Our story begins over a decade ago when our Director and Founder, Rachel Bedgood, decided to create a business which would provide background screening services to individuals and organisations across the UK.

Rachel set out to become an expert within her field, and despite limited business or industry knowledge, through sheer drive and determination she knew she would make something exceptional.

Business started trading from a converted retail shop in a small village in the heart of the South Wales Valleys, unemployment was at an all-time high and Rachel’s ex-mining community was desperate for regeneration. That’s where CBS could help. The first few years were difficult, but she managed to bring on new customers through exceptional customer service and innovative system designs. And as the client base grew so did the staff force.

It was vitally important to Rachel that the area which had initially supported her business should reap the rewards. With this in mind, Rachel makes sure staff within CBS are handpicked from the local community and all services and supplies are sourced locally wherever possible. Trading with a social conscience was and still is a vital requirement for the business and CBS continues to reap the rewards from hard-working, dedicated staff who work closely with all clients to ensure CBS provides an unbeatable service.

Today, CBS is now a multi-award winning company and one of the largest pre-employment screening and DBS check providers in the UK. We strive to keep overheads low and customer services outstanding, and believe these are just a few reasons why our business is the first choice for many people looking for background screening checks from across the UK.

Due to our prominent place within the market, we are now part of the Home Office Consortium Group with a multitude of resources and solutions available to benefit our clients. This, along with our proven track record, separates us from the mass of other organisations claiming to offer similar services.

CBS continues to grow from strength-to-strength creating new partnerships and opportunities. We welcome the prospect of discussing your requirements and providing a tailored solution to meet your needs.
