Background & Pre-Employment Checks

Background & Pre-Employment Checks

Do You Really Know Your Candidates?

Trustworthy, reliable, honest employees are critical to your business reputation and success. But how can you ensure you are able to professionally verify your job applicants CV and personal background – confirming their employment history and academic excellence?


Avoid making recruitment mistakes. Making a decision and hiring staff without the resources and suitable assessment tools can ultimately be a costly experience. Instead get your candidates thoroughly and accurately checked and tested by our experienced staff at Scope. Learn here how our background check services can help you save costs and increase efficiency when you’re next hiring.


In our background checks or background investigation, Scope staff look up and compile criminal, commercial, and financial records of your prospective employees. Using databases, social media and online searches, our staff can complete pre-employment checks to investigate if employees are genuine and a suitable fit for your company culture.
