Testimonial

This used to be a time-consuming task with applicants coming to our office with their IDs and documentation. The Recruitment Officer would have to copy all their papers and check the right ID was provided for the police check. In some instances the candidate would end up needing more documents and they’d have to organise to come back. Now the whole recruitment process is automated. Our checks go through CVCheck which is integrated with our custom-built CRM system and the process of screening candidates is now streamlined and smooth.

* 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.
