In today’s online world it is critical to understand a candidate’s online presence. NetWatch helps to avoid brand damage and risk from negative media.

Your data is in safe hands - we are fully GDPR compliant, ISO27001 certified, and regularly undertake investigations for the police and FTSE100 organisations.
If social media accounts or online information exists you can be sure that NetWatch will find it, and that it will be assessed in a precise and objective manner.
It’s essential that there is a defined purpose for looking documented prior to any searches being undertaken, and that the candidate has been made aware their online presence may be checked as part of the vetting process. It definitely isn’t ok to snoop across a candidates social media without any thought paid to either of these areas.
Does verification of names, addresses and credit history tell you a person’s mental wellbeing, work ethic and morals? If stolen identity information is used by a candidate can you be certain you are screening the right person? Are you certain that the qualifications, experience and history of your candidates is all correct?
The answer is that traditional checks, as part of a well rounded approach to screening can be useful and a great starting point to understand more about a candidate. By layering open source and social media data on top it is possible to validate information and gain a much wider understanding about a candidate, their morals, their work ethic and any associated risks to your business.
Vetting a candidate's online presence internally is very challenging, but it is possible. What’s important is to ensure that if it is done internally that you can be 100% confident that all social media accounts are definitely being located for all the people screened.
If they aren’t this introduces a huge bias into the process. It’s also essential to ensure that strict policies and guidelines are in place to ensure staff remain objective. More advice can be found in our download guide to introducing these types of checks.
This depends very much on the role. A criminal record check isn’t mandatory for all types of job, and in many cases it could be seen as unnecessary. We offer a criminal record check as an extra on all our screening packages, and our experts are on hand if you need advice.
