Our Mission and Values

At CVCheck, we’ve always had the vision of a world built on trust. When we started in 2004, we imagined a secure online platform for the safe exchange of personal and professional information in good faith.

In 2006, we built it.

Since then, we’ve continued to develop the most technologically advanced information-screening platform available.

Our mission

We provide the verified information to support people in building trust and growing honest relationships.

We value…

Creative Insight

We value possibility thinking that sees to the heart of an issue to create great solutions.


We value self-leadership, thought leadership and the willingness of our people to make the right decisions at the right time for the right reasons.


We value doing the right thing and honouring our commitments.


We value ‘all in’ enthusiasm that is evident in all that we do.

Nurturing people and relationships

We value a culture that appreciates people and fosters empathy, empowerment, openness and mutual respect in all relationships.


We value accuracy and honesty; alignment between thought, speech and action.
