FAQs

A director check investigates an individual’s past and present appointments, director disqualifications (details vary from country to country), or whether they were barred from being a director. The information can be helpful for employers who wish to verify that their candidate has indeed been a director of a company. It can also be used to confirm dates of employment, including self-employment.

The information found from a Directorship check includes:
✔️Current and previous directorships
✔️Appointment and resignation dates
✔️Function and role within the business

Details of any disqualifications can be found as part of a separate ‘Disqualified Directorship’ check. Data availability may vary for countries outside the UK.

Certn checks the person’s name against the UK Companies House, the official registrar of companies in the UK, and produces a report with information on dates of appointment and positions held at current and previous companies.

The average turnaround time for directorship checks is one day once the applicant has submitted their check. Data availability may vary for countries outside the UK.

We have been using Certn Credence for our background screening requirements for over 2 years now and I have to say in comparison with other organisations we have used in the past they are a breath of fresh air and a pleasure to deal with and I am very happy with the service they provide.
Contracts Administrator Tori Global
I’d definitely recommend Certn. I’ve used 3-4 alternative background screening companies before, and they do not compare at all to the service level provided by Certn.
Human Resources Manager Orchard Global Asset Management
Fantastic service from our account manager and his team. They are responsive and easy to get hold of, clear in their communication, helpful and friendly, keep on top of the screening process and do a great job. I’m so happy that I moved to Certn Credence.
