Qualifications Checks

The most common deception that candidates claim on their CV is that of their qualifications, either claiming falsely to having been awarded certain diplomas and degrees, or to having achieved grades above their awarded grade.

In order to verify the academic qualifications stated by your candidate, we liaise directly with the candidate’s awarding body or institution. For instances where this verification is not possible, the candidate will be requested to provide certification to demonstrate the attainment of such qualifications.

If one of your requirements for a role is that the applicant be a member of a professional or industrial body, we can verify their status for you as part of your pre-employment screening process. Professional memberships often lapse or expire, so it is important to ensure your applicant is up-to-date if the role requires it.
