Online Reference Checks

We’re here to ease the burden of reference checking.

Reference and background checks can often be time consuming, which is why it’s important to remain as efficient as possible when you’re recruiting for your next employee.

At CVCheck, we offer online reference checking services that are cost-effective, fast and accurate. Our reference checks will verify a candidate’s previous job history and their references, sharing the results with employers online via email upon the completion of a check. We’ve provided reference checks for companies in Australia and internationally, making it easier for employers to hire the right staff.

** 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.
