“VettingGateway is an integral part of our background checking process. Without it, we’d be completely unable to manage such a large pool of people.”


What is a background check?

A background check allows you to verify information about a persons past. For example, when hiring a new employee it is important to check their work and education history, or you may need to do a criminal record check.

How it works, in a nutshell

1. Set your parameters

Get started by setting up bespoke rules and processes for your typical applicant checks. Select from intelligent defaults (created by our experts) or create your own to mirror existing processes.

3. Complete checks

Tasks will be prioritised through a checklist, listing outstanding tasks within an applicant’s profile. Tasks are presented in a logical order to ensure maximum productivity and efficiency.

2. Invite applicant

You can now invite applicants in a quick and easy manner. Simply type in an individual’s email address, or upload a CSV file to send out bulk invitations.

4. Quality management

Once a profile is complete, you’ll be provided with a final opportunity to quality check the profile. After your seal of approval, you can download a PDF summary, or send the information to AirportGateway.

  • Why can’t I just conduct social media checks manually?
    As Social Media Checks rise in popularity, employers are advised to avoid the temptation to manually check the social media accounts of their candidates. The risks of compliance breaches and human bias are, quite simply, too great. Here are just some of the problems associated with manual Social Media Checks: Breaches in data and privacy laws Inaccurate information – it’s easier than you might think to check the wrong person Human bias and error Cumbersome and time-consuming – it is virtually impossible to scan and collect social media data as comprehensively as a purpose-built algorithm Candidate Experience – a candidate is likely to have a much more favourable view of an employer if they trust that their social media will not be accessed by a human. The impartial nature of using software to conduct a Social Media Check means that employers won’t lose the trust of their new hires during the background checking process.
  • What platforms are checked?
    The individual(s) you invite for Social Media Checks will be given the option to select from a range of commonly used platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Flickr, Medium, Tumblr
  • What is included in the Social Media Check Report?
    At the end of each Social Media Check, you will be provided with a comprehensive but easy-to-read report highlighting any issues uncovered within the 7 key index measures. These include: Extremist groups Swearing & profanity Negative sentiment Hate speech Violent images Potential nudity Toxic language
  • How long does a Social Media Check take?
    The time to conduct a social media check depends on the number of accounts being scanned. A typical Social Media Check takes around 15 – 20 minutes from the point of consent being given to a report being generated.
  • Are Social Media Checks legal?
    With VettingGateway, you can be sure that your checks are compliant and legal. The platform ensures consent is obtained and that all scans are conducted consistently, eliminating any chance of human bias or error, that come from manual checks, which could later lead to disputes.
