Right to Work, Credential and Qualification Checks

This range of checks plays a crucial role in validating a candidate’s credentials, qualifications, and legal right to work, thereby becoming an indispensable part of safeguarding your organization’s reputation and the integrity of your recruitment process. These checks help mitigate the risks of fraudulent activity and ensure that you are hiring individuals who are not only qualified but also genuinely represent the information they provide. This proactive approach to candidate screening is vital for maintaining a trustworthy and secure work environment, reinforcing your commitment to operational excellence and the safety of all stakeholders.

Our checks include:

Professional Body Membership Check

Verify the professional qualifications and membership that the candidates have listed on their applications.

Qualification Check – Austalia

We will verify the candidate’s listed qualification with the issuing organisation and will obtain the following details:

  • Individual’s name on the qualification
  • Name of the Institution
  • Name of the qualification obtained
  • Date qualification was obtained

Qualification Check – International

Have an applicant that received their qualification abroad? Accurate Australia can complete international qualification checks on behalf on employers and provide peace of mind. Turnaround times may vary for international qualification checks depending on the Institution and country. Please contact us for a more detailed discussion.

Entitlement to Work (VEVO) Check

Is your candidate is entitled to work in Australia? Is their visa valid? As a registered organisation, we help employers check the work rights of visa holders who are either prospective and/or current employees.

The Entitlement to Work check involves checking the applicant information on the Visa Entitlement Verification Online system (VEVO) provided by the Australian Government.

VEVO will display:

  • Unlimited work rights
  • Limited work rights including a description of the work conditions
  • No work rights

Here is a link to the visa conditions as provided by the Department of Home Affairs website.
