About us

Our world has changed, and so has the way we access and verify information. The problem used to be a lack of information – now there is too much. But the age-old question still remains: who can you rely on?

At CVCheck, we conduct more than 250,000 verification checks every year for private and government organisations, employers and individuals. Our services include more than 1000 online checks across 190 countries, all available on demand.

Since starting in 2004, our vision at CVCheck has been to make verifying information easy, so that people can exchange their personal or professional information safely and grow trusted relationships in good faith.

We’re a young and dynamic tech company, who pioneered online verification. Since launching our information-screening platform in 2006, we’ve continued to develop one of the most technologically advanced services in Australia and New Zealand.

CVCheck listed on the Australian Stock Exchange in September 2015, and is one of the few Australian public companies entirely dedicated to the verification and sharing of personal and professional information.

From July 1st, 2016 CVCheck have acquired New Zealand based Resume Check and launched operations in New Zealand as CVCheck NZ Ltd.

So, if you’re looking for a reliable way to verify information, look no further than CVCheck.
