About Us

With offices in  Dublin (CBI), Hemel Hempstead (Vetting Solutions Centre) & Santander (Vetting Solutions Centre España), Checkback International is widely recognised as pioneers and  ‘Market Leaders’ (Business & Finance Magazine) in Ireland and Spain and one of the founding brands for this sector in the UK.

Founded as a subsidiary of one of Europe’s largest Risk Management organisations in the 90’s, the Checkback brand has since evolved into its own Group structure, which remains an independently owned company.

Over the years we have perfected a specialist screening service, whose primary focus is to support corporate partners in the screening of potential new staff, to ensure that our clients have accurate and verified information in the management of their Human Resources.

Checkback tailors Vetting solutions to suit the needs of individual clients, whilst ensuring service meets the requirements laid down by legislation ( such as Probity and Fitness standards ) and relevant supervising inspectorates. We conduct quality-driven pre-employment vetting services using a proprietary online process that is fully compliant to Irish Data Protection Legislation.


Here’s what our clients are saying

“I’ve used CheckBack International for security screening on behalf of my clients for nearly a year. I can’t even begin to explain how much simpler the whole process is now, in comparison to doing this in-house. I’ve had the privilege of dealing with Joey personally on several occasions, as well as the VERY competent Nicola Beels in the UK office. My clients’ in the security industry are safe in the knowledge that they are fully compliant to standards, through the use of CheckBack. I’m happy to recommend Joey and his team at CheckBack”.


This is a letter of recommendation for the Checkback Group. For over 10 years now, my Human Resources department has worked closely with Joey and his team, to whom we have entrusted this stage of our recruitment process. We recruit globally and operate within a highly legislated sector, which includes vetting to the Airside Pass standard. In every instance, Checkback has managed our candidates efficiently through what can be at times a complicated and frustrating process, without losing sight of strict ‘SOP’s’, and at the same time respecting and understanding the needs of all involved.

Checkback has become a trusted service partner to Kuehne + Nagle, through a clear passion for what they do, enthusiasm in delivering a quality service, thanks for the most part, to a highly experienced, knowledgeable, and well-trained team.

We are delighted to recommend the Checkback group as a service provider for this stage of anyone’s recruitment processes not least where operating within a legislated environment.

“Having worked alongside VSC on security vetting for my company since June 2017, I have found them professional, friendly, informative and a team I enjoy communicating and working with.  Each query or issue has been answered or resolved quickly and efficiently.  Each team member greets you on the phone and is personable and approachable, I don’t even need to explain which company I’m from! A fabulous team to work with.”

Kind Regards,

Joey is knowledgeable and responsive in his dealings with our vetting process. He has also shown a good degree of flexibility when it has come to individual company needs. In addition, I have always been kept informed throughout the process. I am happy to recommend Joey – he constantly demonstrates a professional attitude.

European Criminal Record Page Thanks for this, This has already proven to be so much more efficient than the F20 form! I really value all of your help as well as that of the screening team. Myself and the compliance team are extremely happy to be working with Checkback International. Thanks again!

Ailie Elliott

Professional, honest and completely trustworthy, Joey is a pleasure to work with and delivers excellent results.

Liz Leavy

Our company have been using VSC for a number of years, the friendly and professional service we consistently receive from them is excellent. The service they provide is quick, efficient and the screening checks are tailored to our specific needs, which is exactly what our company was looking for to cover our BS7858 security vetting requirements. VSC provide a really personal service, for example, if things at first appearance don’t seem right they’ll call and ask for additional information and evidence rather than take the easy option of simply “failing”, the vetting, which was our experience of previous companies. Their completed screening reports are easy to read and well presented. We would have no hesitation in recommending VSC to other companies.

Checkback services proved to be an extremely useful tool in our recruitment process. Professional and experienced team ensures the quality of screening within surprisingly short turn-around-time. Checkback services well adjusted to the present labour market in Ireland thanks to the ability to screen foreign nationals in their own languages. All areas of our business relations catered for: from quality screening services through client account administration to comprehensive reporting system
