What are pre employment checks?
Pre employment checks are a process organisations use to verify information about job applicants. This may include verifying academic credentials, employment history, and professional references. Background checks are common, and may include criminal record checks and credit reports. Pre employment screening can help your HR department to identify potential red flags that could indicate a job applicant is not a good fit for the position. By taking the time to conduct pre employment checks by PESCHECK, your organisation can save time and money in the long run by avoiding making a bad hire.
How long do pre employment checks take?
This completely depends on the type of pre employment check. Pre employment checks usually are completed within minutes up to one week. This process involves checks like applicant’s criminal history, education, references, ID and employment history.
How go do pre employment checks go back?
The answer may vary depending on the nature of the job and the level of risk involved. For example, a position that involves handling sensitive information or working with vulnerable populations may warrant a more extensive check than a position with low risks. In general, most pre employment background checks will go back at least seven years. This time frame allows employers to get a sense of an applicant’s past behavior and whether there are any red flags that should be considered.
Here are some examples of time frames PESCHECK conducts:
Reference / CV: 5 – 10 years
Criminal Record: Depends on country
Diploma: Achieved or not achieved
Pep and sanction check: Current status

A credit check is one type of pre employment screening that can be used, but this is not always the case. Credit checks can provide employers with valuable information about a candidate’s financial history and responsibility, that’s way financial organisations or financial roles are likely to credit check employees.
Is a cv check part of a pre employment screening?
While a CV check is not always part of pre employment screening, it is becoming more common, especially for positions that require financial responsibility or handling of sensitive information. a CV check can help your organisation to assess an applicant’s level of experience and to determine whether the applicant is likely to be a good fit for the position.
What types of information are typically included in a pre-employment background check?
Pre-employment background checks can vary depending on the specific requirements of the employer and the position being applied for, but common types of information that may be included in a background check can include criminal history, employment history, education verification and reference checks. Other types of checks, such as credit history or motor vehicle records, may also be included depending on the nature of the position.
