Digital Identity Check

Use First Advantage’s remote digital identity check service to hire smarter and onboard faster by enabling your applicants to prove their identity more efficiently and affordably.

Our digital first mobile journey helps hiring managers and applicants the ability to prove their identity, anytime, anywhere, quicker. This is especially important in today’s competitive recruitment market, when onboarding processes need to be simple and fast to attract the talent you want.

What is it?

Our digital first mobile journey is designed to help your hiring managers and applicants capture documents, take selfies, read biometric chip data, and conduct liveness and facial recognition checks linked with data, to help them prove their identity.

From 2022, digital identity is a valid ID check to support both the UK Right to Work and criminal record checking procedures.

For applicants who would prefer to visit a physical location to verify their ID, we also provide access to the UK’s national Post Office branch network.

What do I get?

With First Advantage’s remote digital verification service, you get an efficient and easy to use applicant journey, with near real-time results returned to employers via a dashboard.

Verify identity digitally by confirming documents are valid and belong to the individual conducting the check via a simple audit trail. If further investigation is needed, detailed data is provided to support this process.

What are the benefits?

First Advantage’s applicant journey is easy to use, efficient, compliant, and cost effective. Using our digital ID check service you can reduce manual intervention, time, and cost associated with such checks.
