Never chase a referee again

We know that for many organisations, obtaining reference checks, chasing referees and collating feedback is a time-consuming process. By providing a service to verify employment history for you, as the employer, DDC’s professional reference checking service will save you time and streamline your onboarding process (plus you will never have to chase a referee again).

Reference checks play an important role in verifying an individual’s previous employment. Obtaining references will answer those important questions about your potential new employee’s previous experience e.g.:

  • Did they work for their previous employer for two years or two months?
  • Did they perform their role as a Manager or Assistant Manager?
  • What was the reason for leaving their previous employment?

Verifying previous employment history will ensure the applicant is right for the role and will help you make better and more informed employment decisions.

How does DDC’s reference checking service work?

All applications are completed and managed on DDC’s bespoke, easy to use online customer interface. The system is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week and can be accessed on laptops, tablets and ‘smart phones’, allowing you and your applicants to easily access the system on their chosen device.

The fully managed reference checking service is completely tailorable to enable you to capture an applicant’s employment history to meet your role requirements, ensuring you know exactly who you are appointing. The online system allows you to define:

  • the length of employment history required
  • the minimum number of references
  • if you will accept a personal reference
  • the questions asked of the referee

DDC can also go above and beyond to capture and verify any gaps of employment, to your requirements.
