Due Diligence Checking Ltd is looking to recruit for an administrator position.

The requirement is for a full time contract. Successful candidates will be given an initial one year engagement but, the company is growing so there is a strong expectation of the successful candidate being offered a permanent role if they perform well.

The work covers all aspects of processing Disclosure and Barring Service applications (formerly Criminal Records Bureau) conducting online Identity Validation Checks and administering pre-employment checks on behalf of clients. Generally the role will include:

  • Contacting former employers
  • Running checks using third party applications

The role offers the opportunity to work in a modern IT based office covering all aspects of administration. There will be a lot of telephone and e-mail interaction with clients and applicants, but there is no selling involved.

Given the importance of the work we do, we look for people with an eye for detail and accuracy when checking documents and entering information onto a database, good internal and external communication skills and a good telephone manner. You must also be well organised and be able to prioritise work load. The industry is continuously going through a period of change so there is a requirement to learn new systems quickly and pick up new processes accurately.

Applicants should have previous experience or a suitable academic record but we are willing to consider somebody if they possess adequate basic skills and interview well. Existing holiday commitments will be honoured.

The preferred candidate will be required to apply for a Basic Disclosure and provide references. All employees are encouraged to progress to counter-signatory and will be subject to DBS approval. DDC aims to provide a positive working environment in pleasant surroundings.
