Verification & Compliance

Background Verification – An important step

Previous Employment Reference Checks

When engaging Cheryl McCormack for a recruitment project it will always be with the understanding that the listing is on an exclusive basis (as per the Terms of Business). A minimum of two previous and/or current employment reference checks will be carried out and provided to the client in writing. Referees are also verified prior to a reference being deemed compliant.

Working with Children Checks

Whenever a position is listed with McCormack’s that will involve the incumbent being around or associated with children, a Working with Children Check is required. As a registered employer with the NSW Office of the Children’s Guardian, McCormack’s are able to verify a shortlisted candidate’s WWCC prior to their introduction to the client organisation,

National Police Checks

A Police Check may be carried out on a shortlisted candidate if required. McCormack’s partners with WorkPro – a web-based employee screening service provider allowing us to provide our Clients with the security and peace of mind that their preferred candidate has been fully checked!

This is what WorkPro have to say…

“The completion of a police check or background check contributes to making informed hiring and management decisions to ensure you select the right applicant with the right skills for the job/role. Using WorkPro to conduct your police checks means access to results within a few minutes, using a simple, secure online interface to the National Criminal Database – providing your organisation with accurate, transparent, just-in-time information.”( Downloaded 21052014)

Visa Checks

You can be assured that every Casual/Temporary staff member (who is not an Australian resident) introduced to your organisation through McCormack’s has been verified to ensure they have the right to work in Australia.

McCormack’s partners with WorkPro to be absolutely sure as just checking a passport is not enough.

This is what WorkPro has to say about this…

The Department of immigration are going to be doing spot checks and they will be auditing companies to ensure they are going through the correct channels to validate work rights information. Most temporary visa holders have work rights, although some classes of visas do have restrictions. WorkPro is the only company awarded seamless automated access to Department of Immigration’s Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO)”.( Downloaded 21052014)

Thanks to Cheryl and the team at McCormack’s for yet again sourcing an appropriate applicant and successfully filling an unusual vacancy at our College. We have always relied on McCormack’s for urgent, last minute administration roles and they have been able to fulfil our needs but this latest position required such a variety of specific skills I was not confident we’d find anyone for the job. But McCormack’s found the perfect candidate and we’re very happy once again with the great service they offer. Professional, effective and timely in every way. I would not hesitate to recommend their services.
