What does it check?
We'll obtain a character reference, providing a referee's opinion of the individual.
A character reference will state the capacity in which the referee knows the individual, how long they have known them for, their strengths, areas for development and the referee's opinion of an individual's suitability for a role.
We highly recommend using this check to help you gather character references from people who have known a candidate at different points in their career. These might be co-workers, suppliers, customers, university lecturers, supervisors or anyone who is relevant to an application and can shed light on the candidate’s integrity and honesty, and skills and capability.
Using Verifile’s online system, the referee will automatically be sent a form to return. Response times vary, as Verifile is dependent on the referee’s participation. We aim to give you a response within 5 - 10 working days — but if we cannot achieve that, we will let you know why.
