1 July 2019 - Non-core Children's Workers deadline

A Children’s Worker Safety Check is a legislative requirement under The Act for children’s workers. It has been required for all non-core workers since 1 July 2019.


What package are you required to order?

There are four packages to select from, the right one depends on the answer to the following two questions:


1. Is the check for an Existing Worker or a New Worker?

Existing – employees currently employed as a children’s worker
New – NOT currently employed as a children’s worker


2. Is the check for an Accredited Worker or an Non-Accredited Worker?
Accredited – the child workers job requires them to hold a registration with a regulatory authority (eg, Midwifery Council or the Medical Council of New Zealand) and hold an annual practicing certificate
Non-Accredited – the child workers job does NOT require you to hold a registration with a regulatory authority

Police Vetting

The purpose of our Police Vetting Service is to contribute to public safety, particularly the protection of vulnerable members of society. Similar to a Criminal Record Check, our Police Vetting Service includes criminal history checks and details about any convictions, including the location of the court, the date of the offence and the sentence imposed.

* All turnaround times are estimated working times for New Zealand 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. Should a Police Check be referred for further enquiries it may take several additional days to receive the result, and occasionally much longer. Read more about our delivery times here.

Testimonial

This used to be a hugely time-consuming task, with applicants having to come to our office with their IDs and documents, and the recruitment officer would have to copy their papers and check the right ID documents were provided for the police check. Sometimes the applicant would end up needing more documents, and they’d have to come back. Now after an initial phone interview, our whole recruitment process is automated. The process goes through CVCheck which is integrated with our custom-built CRM system. The process of screening candidates is now streamlined and smooth.
