Educational & Professional Verification Check

With around a third of jobseekers embellishing or exaggerating their academic qualifications, employers who fail to have adequate safeguards in place risk exposing their business to dishonest and under-qualified staff.

The implications of avoiding the responsibility of conducting professional background checks could be particularly serious in professions where certain qualifications are a regulatory pre-requisite of the position, such as in the legal, medical or financially-regulated industries.

With the increase in online diploma mills, fraudulent certificates have become more sophisticated and readily available and can be difficult to detect.

This fast, simple and effective check provides unbiased results which are obtained directly with the registry or administration office for all levels of qualifications from secondary through to university level and professional accreditations.
