Hiring honest employees is the only way to create wealth for your company, and protect your business reputation.
How do you employ trustworthy, reliable staff with integrity, in this depressed economy?
You can rely on your instincts.
Or you can have us professionally verify your job applicants CV and background to establish they are who they say they are, and have the qualifications they claim to have.
Our expertise will eliminate the stress and uncertainty associated with trying to figure out if a CV is genuine, and whether a job applicant’s background history or integrity fit with your company’s values.
You can place your trust in PVL. Our founder has been continuously involved in background screening in New Zealand for more 18 years and pre-employment background screening checks are all we do, every day, every year.
Call anytime for customer references - and we will put you in touch with existing clients. Speak directly with our satisfied customers about the outstanding reports and assessments we prepare, and the time and money we save them by ensuring they only hire honest, trustworthy employees.
Only verify.co.nz has the experience and confidence to provide you with a written assessment of the information collected about your candidate. Unlike other providers, if we believe a candidate is unsuitable for appointment, we will tell you, in writing.
In the more than six years we have been operating no candidate fully screened and cleared by PVL has ever subsequently defrauded or stolen from their employer; or found to have lied on their CV; or been dismissed for misconduct. Screening by PVL is the best insurance you can have about who you are hiring.
We pride ourselves on our 100% success rate in accurately assessing the honesty, suitability and trustworthiness of your applicants for employment, from school-leaver, to CEO, to Chairman of the Board. If we have cleared them, you can trust them.

What We Can Offer You
From a traditional background check to online integrity tests or specialised forensic analysis of your job applicant's CV's, our products and services are the most comprehensive available in New Zealand, and can be tailored to meet the needs of any company.
You can pick and choose which enquires you want us to undertake - pay only for the actual checks you request.
Or select from one of our popular screening packages for a complete 360 degree assessment of your job applicants.
In addition to being a one-stop solution for your employee screening needs, PVL has the following essential points of difference:
- You receive a comprehensive written report and assessment of the relevance of all information collected so you can make an informed decision about whether to hire the candidate. No other screening company in New Zealand offers this level of expertise and commitment to your company.
- You have access to our 20-minute online Integrity Test, a non-invasive, interactive, computer-based test that accurately predicts the predisposition of a candidate towards counter-productive behaviour, including theft, substance abuse, gambling, bribery; and whether they will be an accountable and loyal employee. No other screening provider offers this service.
- If you do hire the candidate we are always available to assist with issues or concerns that might arise regarding their honesty and integrity. It is essential to periodically re-evaluate your staff as almost all employee fraud is committed by longer-serving personnel. See our “Due Diligence” programme for details of the ongoing services we provide, that will protect you even further.
- PVL is a member of the internationally recognised National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS), with over 760 member companies worldwide. Our membership gives you immediate access to a global network of in-country specialists.
- Recruit from overseas with confidence! We can facilitate the essential foreign background checks you require with one of our trusted overseas partners – native speakers, working in local time-zones, who are familiar with the laws and privacy regulations of their country.
- We repeatedly undertake criminal records checks in England, the USA, Australia and India; we frequently verify degrees in France, Germany and Asia; and regularly confirm past employment in Canada, Ireland and the Middle East - all this to ensure the safety of your business.
- For your Chinese job applicants we can verify the authenticity of Chinese educational qualifications directly with the PRC Ministry of Education.
