I will look further into obtaining a UK check, they're know as DBS (formally CRBs) but I'm not sure they're available for an employee to do for themselves.
I just feel like for such a massive company this is an incredibly awkward way to go about hiring a foreigner, I'm convinced I'm missing something!
I will post an update once it's resolved. Happy New Year!
No, they're not. As mentioned they are called Subject Access Notices. You seem to be referring to the 'Criminal Records Bureau'? Not the same thing.

This seems to incorporate a 'SAN' type check, but seems broader. It seems to say
aim at stopping paedos working in schools, and so on.
You have a right to get a copy of your SAN. I had to do it once long ago, to get a US visa. Pay a few pounds and wait a few weeks. I think I had to go to my local cop shop (Paddington Green - oh the joy) to request it, and prove ID etc ... Things might well have changed. that was about 10 years ago now...
