Prior to working closely with a Giant Screening on the background checks, Mourant was using another background checking supplier for a number of years and over the years encountered issues with them that ultimately affected the efficiency.


Rather than being any other third-party screening service provider for Mourant, Giant has actively tried to be as responsive as possible. The people at Mourant benefits from a responsive team on the other end of an email or a phone call. They didn't have to follow up on any gaps in background checks. And the turnaround time just improved twofold, which was extremely beneficial, particularly in a regulated business like theirs.

The results

After partnering with Giant, Mourant experienced great customer service. All queries were answered in a really speedy fashion by people that had a great deal of knowledge in this area. The system at Giant Screening created efficiencies within the team and saved them bundles of time during the onboarding process. "I think there are no simple ways of saying it, frankly. Our lives have changed and for the better", Joana Cerqueira - Senior Human Resources Manager.


The system at Giant Screening helped Mourant to onboard candidates swiftly. The company received positive feedback from the candidates on how easy the background checking process has been for them.
