As a Business and IT Consultancy, we work very closely with clients so it’s critical that they trust us with their business data and are confident in our people.

"As Waterstons expands we are finding more and more of our larger clients requiring us to have any consultants working with them on projects to be security cleared, something we’d only ever done on a case-by-case basis before. The decision was made to ensure all our existing consultants were taken through background checks as well as introducing these checks into our onboarding of all new staff."


Waterstons wanted to work with a partner who could ensure a quick and easy way to complete the checks without too much intervention internally. The Giant online system was very straightforward to set up and use and the reports are created swiftly and are very comprehensive.

The results

Since partnering with Giant, we’ve successfully completed run background checks for over 130 of our consultants ensuring both our own and our client's requirements are met.
