We have improved candidate experience in uploading documents, helping you to gather documents and complete checks more quickly.

These are the following checks that have been enhanced in the past month:

AU AFP check: A separate, dedicated document upload section for AFP documents has been created.

NZ Police Vetting check: ‘Marriage Certificate’ option has been removed from the candidate instructions.

NZ Ministry of Justice Criminal check: We are now asking for only one document (Passport, NZ Driving License, or NZ firearms licence.)

Address check: A separate, dedicated "Address Check Documents” upload section has been created.

Driving Licence check: Driving licence document upload is now linked to the Driving Licence Check. We now ask for a document upload only if the Driving Licence Check is ordered, and if candidates select “Yes” to "Do you hold a current driving licence?". Both sides of the licence document are now required.

New "Supporting Documents" upload page: This has replaced the current "Documents" upload page and will simplify candidate understanding of required document submissions with clearer instructions and purpose.

Duplicate avoidance: For candidate convenience and clarity, any documents already uploaded in one of the other document upload sections, but required on the “Supporting Documents” page will automatically appear as uploaded.

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.
