Our education checks

Veremark carries out Education Verification check all over the world. Our role in the Education Verification Documents process is:

  1. Collecting valid proof of education from candidates during the application process.
  2. Minimising the need for manual communication between the applicant tracking team and candidates for document submission.
  3. Enhancing the efficiency of the education verification process.

We've made a few adjustments to the process, so going forward, it looks like this:

Step 1: Ask candidates for a proof of education

  • Label: "Do you have a copy of your transcript or certificate?

Step 2: Education Section - Document Upload

  • If the candidate selects "Yes" for proof of education for any employers, a dedicated document upload section will be displayed.
  • The number of document upload sections displayed will correspond to the number of academic achievements for whom the candidate needs to provide proof of education.
  • Each upload section will display the name of the institution and examples of acceptable education documents.

Step 3: Check Settings Page

On the Check Settings page, a new configuration option has been introduced.

This configuration option provides clients with the ability to toggle the requirement for candidates to provide proof of education. The following toggles are available:

  • On: Candidates are required to provide proof of education.
  • Off: Candidates are not required to provide proof of education.

What background check do I need?

This depends on the industry and type of role you are recruiting for. To determine whether you need reference checks, identity checks, bankruptcy checks, civil background checks, credit checks for employment or any of the other background checks we offer, chat to our team of dedicated account managers.

Why should employers check the background of potential employees?

Many industries have compliance-related employment check requirements. And even if your industry doesn’t, remember that your staff have access to assets and data that must be protected. When you employ a new staff member you need to be certain that they have the best interests of your business at heart. Carrying out comprehensive background checking helps mitigate risk and ensures a safer hiring decision.

How long do background checks take?

Again, this depends on the type of checks you need. Simple identity checks can be carried out in as little as a few hours but a worldwide criminal background check for instance might take several weeks. A simple pre-employment check package takes around a week. Our account managers are specialists and can provide detailed information into which checks you need and how long they will take.

Can you do a background check online?

All Veremark checks are carried out online and digitally. This eliminates the need to collect, store and manage paper documents and information making the process faster, more efficient and ensures complete safety of candidate data and documents.

What are the benefits of a background check?

In a competitive marketplace, making the right hiring decisions is key to the success of your company. Employment background checks enables you to understand more about your candidates before making crucial decisions which can have either beneficial or catastrophic effects on your business.

What does a background check show?

Background checks not only provide useful insights into a candidate’s work history, skills and education, but they can also offer richer detail into someone’s personality and character traits. This gives you a huge advantage when considering who to hire. Background checking also ensures that candidates are legally allowed to carry out certain roles, failed criminal and credit checks could prevent them from working with vulnerable people or in a financial function.
