A CV Check Company (ASX: CV1)




Who we are

We provide a full range of employment screening, verification and credentials management services to numerous industries. Having acquired Bright People Technologies at the start of 2021, CV Check Ltd now operates three different platforms: Cited, Enable and CVCheck.

We pride ourselves on our efficiency, accuracy and professionalism – but that’s not who we are. It doesn’t define us. We’re creating something bigger. Something special. A progressive organisation built on a solid foundation of trust and dependability.

We know that trust is not always easy to give, which is why we’ve spent years building relationships and developing technology that supports people. We are honest and reliable in all we do – whether it’s for each other, the person looking for a new opportunity, a growing business or a fast-paced enterprise partner.

Our people know that when trust is felt, we all willingly contribute to what is needed, not just by offering our presence, but by sharing our dedication, new ideas and boundless energy. Our people are the reason we’re able to create something special.

Our history

CVCheck began in 2004 with a simple premise at heart: verifying information for people should be simple, easy and secure, and that the exchange of personal or professional information should be done safely.

In 2015, CVCheck listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) and is now one of the few Australian public companies entirely dedicated to the verification and credentials management of personal and professional information.

Two years later in 2017, CVCheck acquired Resume Check, with the likeminded entities sharing a vision of global growth. CVCheck successfully automated Resume Check’s manual processes, making its offering highly efficient and streamlined. 

Most recently, in 2021, CVCheck acquired Bright People Technologies, with the vision to combine industry leaders to create a credentials-based workforce management capability, built on Bright’s workforce compliance strength, and CVCheck’s highly automated verification workflows and partner integrations.

And today? CVCheck is now trusted to carry out more than 300,000 secure checks every year for organisations, employers and individuals.
