How to choose the perfect reference check for your candidate

In this post, we give you a rundown of our two new checks. We explain how to weigh up your requirements and decide which check is best for you.

Streamlined Employment Reference Check

  • Best choice when you want the fastest and easiest check for all of your new hires
  • Slashes your administration time and cost (see exactly how much you’ll save with our cost calculator – can you afford not to?)
  • A low-cost affordable option when price is a primary factor
  • Receive the reference instantly when the referee completes the questionnaire
  • Built-in fraud protection technology to detect fake references
  • $15.00 ex GST**
  • Estimated turnaround time 1 day*

Verified Employment Reference Checks

  • The best choice for more senior roles or higher risk candidates (Finance & IT)
  • Most suitable when your organisation’s risk tolerance is low
  • Gives you absolute certainty regarding the referee’s details. We contact the HR or Payroll department to confirm:
    1. The referee worked or is working at the nominated organisation
    2. The referees’ position
    3. The professional relationship between the referee and the candidate
  • $35.00 ex GST**
  • Estimated turnaround time 3 days*

The CVCheck Difference

Regardless of which check you choose, Streamlined or Verified, all of our employment reference checks include:

  •  24/7 online ordering convenience
  •  Mobile friendly experience making responses from candidates and referees easier and quicker
  •  Real-time status updates on the progress of reference
  •  Direct SMS/Email to both candidates and referee for faster response times
  • Easy to read reports

* * GST as applicable within your region. *All turnaround times are estimated working times for Australian checks and are provided as a guide only. Turnaround times are based on our experience of the time taken for the majority of these checks to be delivered. However, CVCheck is reliant on third parties for supply of information, and in some cases those third parties may take longer to supply that information. Accordingly, CVCheck does not give any time guarantees for any checks or packages. It is CVCheck’s policy and practice to keep you informed as much as possible if there are any unusual delays. Read more about our delivery times here.
