When I was introduced to Sterling, I was thrilled by how great its customer service was. It’s unlike anything I’d seen before from a screening partner.

Services Tailored for Your Industry

We offer screening packages for controlled and non-controlled positions with various options to help our clients make informed and compliant hiring decisions. Our technology services can include:
Directorship Search

In the UK, Sterling can check whether there are any current or previously-held directorships, declared or undeclared, by the candidate which may constitute a conflict of interest for the employer. This search also checks against the Disqualified Directors list held by Companies House. In addition, based on the candidate’s address history in the last three years or more, Sterling can launch a Directorships search, or a best-practice equivalent, in almost any country in the world.

Credit Enquiry (or Bankruptcy or Civil Litigation)

Certain roles require a more holistic view of a candidate or company. Credit checks can be an invaluable way to validate a person’s suitability for a role. Often mandated within regulated sectors (such as financial services), our reports reveal unbiased insights into a candidate’s financial integrity.
