Employment history check

Pre-Employment screening is an invaluable part of the recruitment process demonstrating an employer’s due diligence and reducing the risk of damage to your business or reputation caused by the actions of an unsuitable employee.

With increased competition in the job market, it is a sad fact that more and more candidates are resorting to dishonesty in an attempt to get the job they desire.
