Can you give our readers a little background into yourself and your role within Organisation?

My name is Rachel Bedgood and I’m the CEO of Complete Background Screening (CBS), Wales’ largest background screening provider. I established the company in 2005 in the heart of the South Wales Valleys after being inspired to find out more about UK screening processes by a news story about a gardener who attacked his employer.

I started out on my own and now employ a team of 12, and together we have transformed CBS into a multi-million-pound company. CBS has gone from strength to strength over the past few years, securing multiple awards including the Guardian Small Business Network Leader of the Year and Chwarae Teg Womenspire Employer of the Year (Private Sector) in the process. As a business owner, I also work hard to create a great working environment for my employees and I’m a keen advocate of flexible working. FULL ARTICLE
