Identity Verification

Confirm the identity of your candidates

By verifying an individuals identity, you can rely on all other findings about the candidate, such as their employment experiences, reference checks, and CV checks.

What is identity verification?

Identity verification is the process of verifying that your candidates are who they claim they are. Verification of the candidate’s identity underpins all other verification and is fundamental to understanding the candidate’s background.

Why conduct identity verification?

There are many benefits of conducting identity verification:

  • Protect your business from liability and risk of hiring misidentified candidates.
  • Safeguard the confidential details of your business from candidates who are not who they say they are, and be protected from potential legal ramifications.
  • Screening your prospective candidates will save you time and money in the long run by understanding from the outset whether the candidate is correctly identified and matches the employment experience provided.
  • Candidates and employees who are not upfront about their identity may indicate a lack of integrity in their working behaviour.
