Avoid bad hires with social media background checks

CheckSocial is an employment background screening platform that uses publicly available information from the web and social media to assess a candidate’s online behaviour.

Discover red flags in a candidates online behaviour

Highlight non desirable behaviours such as provocative or inappropriate posts, substance abuse, discrimination, criminal behaviour or bad-mouthing previous employers and colleagues.

Assess cultural fit


Just like people, businesses have a personality. Ensure the candidate’s personality matches the values and beliefs of your business. Find out what other people are saying about the candidate and how the candidate portrays themselves online.

Easy integration

Our easy-to-use dashboard and API makes it easy for you to add a social media check to your hiring process.

"With more and more candidates living their lives online, we have found that their professional and personal digital footprints can be quite large and complex. As an employer, screener or vetter, it is difficult to search, match and then importantly identify potential red flags without some level of automated help. CheckSocial offers a unique way forward. We are pleased to use their service."

Heath Barker, Founder of Cleard Life
