Digital Identity

DDC ID; The face of identity verification and compliance for DBS & right to work checks

Digital identity checking allows organisations to verify prospective employees’ identities anytime, anywhere. DDC’s digital identity for DBS and right to work solution uses consistent and more secure methods, reducing risk and allowing recruitment in a safer way.

What is digital identity?

Digital identity is a government approved method to verify the identity of candidates remotely during the recruitment process. The government’s intention is to enable organisations to use a certified digital identity service provider (IDSP) to carry out identity checks. This means that organisations can partner with an IDSP to carry out digital identity checking for:

Digital identity for DBS and right to work checks

Digital DBS Checks

Employers can use an identity service provider (IDSP) to digitally verify an applicant’s identity as part of their DBS checks. IDSPs must be certified against the DBS scheme and meet the criteria set out in the Home Office trust framework

Remote Right to Work Checks

Employers working with an identity service provider (IDSP) can now verify an applicant’s identity remotely. This means obtaining the required statutory excuse without having to meet them in person and check and copy their original identity documents.
