For any period or number of previous employers we will request confirmation of dates of employment, job title and reason for leaving. At giant our clients can also request additional information.
employment referencing FCA/SMCR
For a reference for previous regulated positions we use the FCA approved - SYSC 22 Annex 1 Template.
employment referencing CQC/Ofsted
Requesting a reference for previous regulated positions following the CQC’s requirements of employment for Regulation 19 or Governments Staffing and Employment advice.
Where a period of occupational history is requested (i.e. 3 or 5 yrs.) then we will confirm the activity during any gaps (client can specify what constitutes a gap) in that history. This can either be done through applicant declaration, activity references or collecting documentary evidence from the applicant.
highest qualification verification
Captures the applicants highest level of completed Education and provides confirmation of the education qualification, the period of attendance, the type of qualification gained, subjects studied, and grades achieved.
Either entire academic history or client requested completed qualification and provides confirmation of the education qualification, the period of attendance, the type of qualification gained, subjects studied, and grades achieved.
This is used when part of the applicants referencing period has been spent in education and confirms attendance and dates.
A reference is requested from a person who has known the applicant and is not a family member to cover gaps in employment or as a character reference. A character reference, also known as a personal reference, is a recommendation provided by someone who knows the candidate and rather than speaking to their work experience and skills these attest to the applicants character and abilities.
industry specific qualifications/database checking
There are many industry specific qualifications and databases such as NMC, TRN, SIA, HCPC etc. This check will search the relevant database/register and return any information held about the applicant.
professional body verification
Contact the applicable industry or professional body to confirm that the qualification or membership is held and hasn’t lapsed or expired, and that the membership is in good standing.
international occupational and qualifications
All of our occupational and qualification referencing / verifications can be obtained from any country.
This check carries out a comparison between the information that an applicant submits on the platform for screening and the information on their CV to ensure that there is consistency. Any anomalies found will be investigated and rectified.
