Social Media Checks

The Check

Our Social Media check is a powerful new screening tool designed to assess a candidate’s social media profile over a 2, 3 or 5 year period by performing an
in-depth analysis of social media platforms for evidence of adverse or unacceptable online behaviour that may present a risk to a prospective employer’s brand.

The Benefits

The Social Media report complements traditional pre-employment and employment screening by highlighting if an individual’s social media activities are:

  • potentially brand and reputation damaging*
  • a validation of career history on a CV*
  • showcasing undesirable characteristics*
  • encouraging illegal activities*
  • breaching company policy
  • leaking or likely to leak company confidential information
  • likely to have an impact on client relations

*The report should only be run as a part of a pre-employment screening process (post offer) and is not to be used for general candidate assessment in the recruitment process.
