We understand that it may be difficult for some candidates. In such an event, we ask our candidate to inform the recruiter on its intro call so we can try to match you with a selected few employers. Keep in mind the pool of such employers is very limited.
Unfortunately, international background checks are complex and notoriously difficult to carry out. Our in-house security team works with government agencies and private 3rd parties to complete a background check.
Contrary to some common misconceptions about background screening, there isn’t a single centralized government database that houses information about you that is accessed by commercial background screening companies, nor are TruConnect’s background screeners hiding in your bushes or digging in your rubbish to find information on you.
All verifications conducted are done based on information provided by the candidate in their CVs, applications, background forms and/or interviews. Where required by an employer, TruConnect also checks public data sources for information that may help the employer assess the candidate’s honesty and employment risk.
Your background information may be researched and compiled from different sources. For example, to confirm your academic qualifications, your university or college usually will be contacted directly. Also, your past employers generally will be contacted to verify your employment history.
Where available under relevant local laws, criminal history generally is verified through public government or court records. TruConnect may utilize different methods and sources depending on the type and location of search being conducted.
The information available will vary depending on the country where the check is being conducted. In some other countries it is not possible to get a full, national criminal record checked so it may require a check with the local police station.
In some countries the criminal record check result is actually provided directly to you, the candidate, this is the case if you are currently resident in France.
In this step of the candidate background check, we want to verify that you attended the university, college or professional program you said you attended, and that you completed the degree or credential in the field of study to the extent you indicated.
Employers’ use of criminal record information in making employment decisions is subject to the applicable laws and regulations in the country of your employment. Typically employers will review the criminal record and the circumstances around it (with input from you) before reaching a decision. The process for finalizing their decision will vary from employer to employer.
