Why Workforce Verification?
Streamline your employment screening
The Workforce Verification tool is simple for employers to use. Once you select which checks you’d like your candidate to complete, they’ll receive an email invitation to a single, streamlined application.
Smoother candidate experience
The application process is also straightforward on the candidate side, allowing them to complete their checks as quickly and easily as possible. This includes things like giving candidates the option to supply proof of identity either online or by visiting any one of our 3,500 Post Offices – whichever is most convenient for them.
We work closely with employers and candidates to find ways to enhance our service, using new technology to simplify and speed up your screening process. Recent advancements include reducing the number of documents for candidates to upload, and giving users the ability to easily switch between mobile and desktop for faster application processing.
Get help when you need it
A dedicated support team is available to help you with any queries, either through email or over the phone. Your candidates will also have access to a team of over 500 agents to assist with the queries about the application or process.
Working with Children verification
Through Workforce Verification you can verify your candidates’ and employees’ Working with Children (WWC) checks. In Victoria and Western Australia, we also complete a back to source check to confirm the status of the check.
Focus on inclusivity
As a community-focused organisation, we're committed to providing a great experience for all candidates. This means we give options to applicants who are not able to meet the standard ACIC document requirements. We also offer flexibility for people who are not confident with technology and computers, through our in-store ID checks.
Easily integrate Workforce Verification into your current system to simplify the way you invite, track and manage background screening checks. Workforce Verification can currently be integrated with JobAdder and SuccessFactors, and we’re looking to expand integration capabilities in the future.
