Applicants may be overlooked by some departments and private recruitment firms because they do not have security clearances.
"That is certainly the position that has been put to me by a number of people who believe that on paper they would have been rated the best person for the job quite clearly and have found out they lost the job. The issue they put to me is that it was because they did not have security clearance." Senator Gallagher said.
The Australian Public Service Commission warned government departments and agencies that public service job applicants could not be excluded from consideration because they did not have security clearance.
Finance's first assistant secretary for commercial and government services, John Sheridan, said government contracts generally didn't require contractors to have security clearances.
Mr Sheridan said some labour hire firms were asked to provide lists of potential employees with appropriate experience and security clearances and that "Value for money is not just about price and it is not just about one set of qualifications; it is about a range of those things.”
Enter Cleard.life: Cleard.life uses the same suitability standards checks which are applied to national security clearances, but the process is sped up a 100-fold and are at a fraction of the cost. The same methodology that government vetting agencies use to determine the suitability of a person to access to SECRET and TOP SECRET information is now in the hands of HR Professionals, Recruitment Firms, Labour Hire Companies and Employers.
So, going through a pre-employment screening qualification, and being awarded a favourable Cleard.life result, will:
* add value to your proposition, by adding a suitability dimension to your resume
* add value to the private recruiting firm, by considering security clearance requirements
* add confidence to the Government Hiring (or Procurement) Manager
