About CVCheck

This is the part where we are supposed to talk to you about how long we’ve been in business and how our online platform makes it easy to order and share your police check, or other employment information. But, let’s face it. You’re busy, and you don’t care about the 800,000 people we’ve helped before you.

You’re wondering why you should use CVCheck instead of some other provider. We get it … sometimes it’s hard to tell them apart.

So, let’s do something a little different. Let’s go back to the beginning of CVCheck to see why you’re important to us and how you can know that we actually care. That we understand how important your check results are for starting a job, getting licensed, or getting on with life somehow. 

You see, right from the beginning (in 2006) we designed our entire platform around you, as an individual. By that I mean, we ensured none of our checks can be done without your consent. We set everything up so you have access to your check results whether they were ordered by you or by an employer.

So, while we work with thousands of employers and some of Australia’s biggest names, we’ve always understood that employment happens one person at a time.

Lastly, the employers you’ll be working with know and trust CVCheck. That’s important because your check is no good to you if your result is not accepted. If you order through us, you can have 100% confidence that your next employer will trust and accept the results you hold with us. In fact, we guarantee it. 

At the end of the day, we’ve helped thousands of people from hundreds of professions including job seekers, students, health workers, tradesmen, professionals, volunteers … and many more. 

And we can help you too.

Since 2004, our vision has been to help individuals and businesses share verified information safely to build trusted relationships.
