Help on employment background checks

Help Hub

Security Watchdog’s Help Hub is designed to support and guide you through your pre-employment screening journey.

What do background checks involve?

The level of information we will ask you to supply will be dependent on the checks that have been requested on your behalf, and are often determined by the industry sector, role and level of role to which you are applying.

Our goal is to help you secure the position offered to you as quickly and painlessly as possible. But we need your help to do that. It is important that all information provided is accurate and provided as soon as you are able. This will ensure that delays are kept to a minimum and will help us reduce any additional contact with you later in the process.
