Candidate screening involves a detailed examination of the details that a potential candidate presents with their application. Occasionally, a candidate will specifically tune their application for the job at hand, and while not necessarily a false representation, it may not fulfil the full requirements a business has for a given role. More often than not, the ideal talent may have skills and capabilities well beyond those required, but may not see those as important to mention at first.
Our screening and verification service therefore aims to develop a clear picture of what a candidates true potential is, and how their fit within your business environment may bring change, improvements and growth.
In recent times, remote recruiting has been the most popular type of working, with global talent now being at the fingertips of companies worldwide. And unlike a normal localized recruiting operation, remote candidates may submit experience and evidence which is vastly more challenging to verify. We therefore rely upon a complex network of AI assisted screening techniques to ensure that all candidates we recommend have passed the verifications required of our clients.
Nomadic Guild can help your business leverage our experience, products and services to grow your global talentforce and bring change, innovation and growth to your business.
Some clients require that candidates are pre-screened prior to being shortlisted. Nomadic Guild offers this service in-house to applicants in the UK, which includes:
- Ensure you have the right to work in the UK
- Confirm your identity
- Conduct a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, where appropriate (formerly known as a criminal record check)
- Take up references
- Check your employment history and any gaps in employment
- Check any qualifications you are required to have and ask a number of questions in relation to your skill and experience, to ensure your suitability for the role
Depending on the role, employers may request additional checks, and this will be advised at the time of application.
The verification fee is the responsibility of the applicant to pay, and most employers will reimburse any and all successful applicants.
The fee for this service varies. Please inquire with the recruitment officer handling your application for more information.
On average, after receipt of correct submission of information required, this service takes 21 working days to complete. Third party checks, such as criminal records, can sometimes take up to 15 working days.
Some roles require advanced screening to ensure that employers are making the right hiring decisions with candidates.
Additionally, these checks are valuable not only for the employer, but also the candidate, as it shows you what recruiters and employers see and know about you. It's an opportunity to verify that your information is correct and up-to-date.
Unfortunately, no. The checks are time consuming and costly, and neither employers nor Nomadic Guild will refund unsuccessful applicants.
It is important to note, that many employers ask for some or all of the information contained within the verification checks, so it's a valuable set of documents to add to your CV.
