Understanding background checks

What is a background check?

Background check services can be used by individuals or companies to find out if a candidate is right for a job. A background check does this by going through a number of databases and sources to assess and determine the behavioural history of an individual.

Each case is different, and depending on what job the candidate is applying for, the checks required and the results will be different.

Background check sources may include employment history, criminal databases, local and national police databases, financial records, global networks, social media profiles and more.

Purpose of a background check

Background checks are mainly used to verify information about a person; such as whether they have a criminal record, if their employment and education history is correct and whether they are entitled to work in a certain country.

Another reason a company may run a background check is to mitigate business risks of hiring the wrong person; in particular when a job requires a level of trust such as teachers, nurses, employees of a financial institution or government workers.

Background check FAQ

Your background check should be ready within 3 days; however, this will depend on the type and purpose of the check, and whether further investigation is needed.

Yes, you can run a background check on yourself using Backy Check.

A background check verifies a candidate’s background by analysing different databases and sources. Some checks may include checking previous employment, criminal records, education, credit history, driver history, social media, and more. The sources which are reviewed will depend on the objective of the background check.

Background checks can include, but are not limited to, police checks, criminal record checks, identity verification, Australian work entitlement (VEVO) checks, online behavioural checks, fraud checks, identity fraud, checking criminal databases, online identity checks, reference checks, credit checks and credit score.
