Employment Reference Checks

We've taken the pain out of reference checking.

The hard truth is that reference checking is essential if you want to avoid a known risk to your business and personal reputation.  The problem has always been that references are extremely time-consuming.

Our new reference checks save you hours of admin time and follow up calls to referees and candidates.

What our customers say

Given the fast nature of our business, especially retail, switching to the new streamlined reference check has seen much quicker turnaround times.

** 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.
