Your journey to your new role begins here. Welcome to Security Watchdog

Security Watchdog's Candidate screening guide is designed to help guide you through the employment screening process.

We want to make the process of employment screening as simple and brief as possible. The level of information we require is dependent upon what information your prospective employer has requested. If you are able to supply all the information required promptly and accurately, it will ensure your application is processed as quickly as possible.

Let’s get started

for us to carry out your checks, you'll need to make sure you have the correct documents ready

During the pre-employment screening process you will be required to provide us with certain documentation. Below is a guide to help you understand what we need.

Next, it's time to complete your online form

These guides will tell you how to complete each section of your online form.



Personal Details

Certain personal data will be requested of you in order to support and enable the checks that have been selected by your future employer. We are likely to need documentation such as identification, proof of right to work and proof of address.

Address History

We will need to know a continuous history of all the addresses you have lived in for the period of time requested by your future employer. The link below will tell you how to enter the addresses into our online form.

Employment History

Your future employer will want to confirm your employment history over a set period of time. The link below will guide you on how to complete your online form so that we can process your screening as quickly as possible.

Education History

We will need you to tell us of any education certificates or professional qualifications you've achieved that are relevant to your new role. Professional qualifications are those set by independent governing bodies.

Additional Info

Your future employer might ask questions about specific checks as part of your screening.  It is your chance to declare anything adverse that may arise during the process. If you are unsure then you can contact the Human Resources Department of your future employer or learn more below.
