Will InterCheck help us make hiring decisions?

Unfortunately we do not provide any advice around hiring decisions. Whilst we will provide a comprehensive set of background checking reports outlining any criminal records or other required credential checks, the actual decision to proceed with hiring a potential candidate is your own business decision. Our background checks reports will help support your decision making process and help to mitigate HR risks.
