Key Forensic Services

About Key Forensic Services

Our ambition at KFS is to become the go-to forensic service. We want to be the best. To help us do that, we need the very best forensic talent out there to come and join our already hugely experienced and knowledgeable team who are world-leaders in forensic sciences.

With over 240 employees across four strategically-placed sites in the UK – Coventry, Bristol, Norwich and Warrington – Key Forensic Services offers a full range of forensic services to the criminal justice system, defence solicitors/lawyers and private sector companies. All four sites are well-located and easily accessible, with plenty of community facilities available as well as conference and meeting rooms. We have state-of-the-art laboratories and are lucky to have plenty of space – our site at Coventry was purpose built.

We are one of the leading Forensic Science Providers in the UK and Europe. We’re growing all the time and the future is incredibly bright. And at the heart of our growth is our company culture – the KFS family.
