    How Refcheck Assists In Recruitment

    iD-Refcheck enables recruitment agencies and employers to verify the personal details of a potential employee or candidate prior to offering employment. By improving transparency and disclosure, informed decisions can be made regarding one of the most important assets of an organization, its employees.

    Recent surveys have revealed an increase CV/Resume fraud. Employers or their agents need to protect themselves against financial loss and expensive legal action incurred through employing people with questionable integrity, credibility and skills.

    ID-Refcheck can verify a wide range of personal information, including identity of candidate, information held by credit bureaus, criminal records, driver's licenses, global academic qualifications and professional association memberships.

    iD-Refcheck, currently utilized by more than 750 companies and recruitment agencies, can also provide a valuable employee due diligence and audit tool.

    As an online consent-driven service, iD-Refcheck allows 24/7 access which is password and username restricted. A user can determine which information they require verification for each candidate, dependent on position or seniority. iD-Refcheck carries no registration cost or monthly subscription fee, with users being charged only for usage via a monthly statement.

    iD-Refcheck also provides a valuable online database which enables a user to:

    1. Track the progress of an application; and
    2. Search for all applications made and results completed.

    Upon completion of an application a user will receive an email confirming receipt of application. Upon verification of all the requested searches, the user will also receive an email containing a link to the Validation Certificate. The Validation Certificate can be printed or forwarded by email to a third party using options contained therein.

    Response times vary from real-time to 72 hours depending on data requiring verification. In the event that incorrect or insufficient information is provided by a user, these response times may increase.

    In order to have access to the service, companies are required to register online. Upon approval, companies will receive an email confirming terms, pricing and further instructions on how the system operates. Registered users will also receive an online training manual.

    Pricing is dependent upon country of registration, monthly volumes and data requiring verification.
