What do you mean suitable?

It is a little technical – so bear with us. What we mean when we say ‘suitable’ is defined by the Australian Government, specifically in the Attorney General’s  Protective Security Policy Framework PSPF12 and PSPF13 and the related Adjudicate Guidelines & associated vetting protocols which includes the whole-of-person concept.

I’m a Recruiter, What Value is Cleard Life to Me?

Government departments are encouraged to procure some verification check services to meet role risk profiles but then use a ‘more intense suite of tools to complement their employment screening practices’ in order to satisfy a suitability determination. This is in harmony with the 2018 ICAC NSW publication on employment screening… Read more »

Artificial Intelligence Is Scary.

Understood. We don’t like the idea of being subjected to an all powerful, artificially intelligent system that solely determines employment outcomes. That is why we use the phrase Augmented Intelligence not Artificial Intelligence as our software generates explainable recommendations for a vetting expert to make the final decision. 1. We always have humans review the interview… Read more »
