I don’t have an internal referencing standard - what time frame would you suggest I reference my applicants to?
Among our clients our most popular check is a 5 year check, however 3 years often provides a good overview of what the applicant has been doing and provides detail on movement between jobs or locations
Will referees have kept employment records covering the time period I specify?
As a general rule most companies and institutes will keep staff records between 5- 7 years
Can I just obtain the most recent reference rather than a period of time?
Yes of course, VettingGateway allows you to specify your referencing standard by time frame and by type of reference. See our reference by reference page for more information
How many employment references can I obtain?
As many as you require, as long as you specify how far back in time you wish to collect the information from, then the applicant will be asked within their online application form to submit to you what you require.
What if my employee hasn’t studied in the last 5 years but I need an education reference?
If you are expecting your employee to have gained a particular qualification, you can set up the parameters you require such as an education reference within the last 15 years. This will ensure the applicant provides to you the correct information without you having to chase them for it
