Background Checks and verification services

by Josef Kafka

Here’s the scenario. You’re looking to employ a new au pair, nanny or perhaps a home helper. You receive a CV or resumé that looks fantastic. You invite the candidate for an interview and your meeting is going really well. You like what you see and feel a great rapport building and you’re already beginning to imagine how the person might fit in around the place. You notice your candidate is eloquent, well presented and has a long list of credible looking references. Everything’s looking perfect and you’re all but sold.

Unfortunately, these things aren't always what they seem – most of the time, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

You’re on the brink of hiring someone on the strength of words on a page, words from their mouth and a good ‘gut feeling’. The sad truth in today’s world is that all those things really aren't enough to warrant the enormous amount of trust you're about to hand over to them.

How can you make sure your potential hire is really trustworthy enough to be given the keys to your life? 

You might think that following up on character and professional references and receiving positive feedback is all the proof you need. Think again. There are ways round every system and all someone trying to conceal their true identity needs to do is enlist the help of others to work the system.

Before entrusting someone you've just met with the safety and well-being of your children or giving them 'access all areas' to your home and valuables, the only way you're going to find out their true colours is by hiring a private investigator. Only a highly trained and skilled investigator with access to cutting edge covert investigation equipment and technology will be able to find out if you really should be hiring them or not.

Remember, this isn't paranoia. It's talking perfectly reasonable steps to protect your family and home. If someone is indeed putting up a front, there's only one way to catch them; with their guard down. After this, you’ll know for sure that you’ve either found the perfect person for the job or to avoid them at all costs.
