1. Reason for this Search - Select either employment or volunteering from the drop down menu.

2. Search Due Date -This is the deadline for the candidate to action the criminal record check request that you sent. By default, the date is set to 1 month in advance. Their invitation to complete the request will expire after the date selected.

3. Candidate's First Name - Enter their first name.

4. Candidate Last Name - Enter their last name.

5. Candidate's email - Enter the email address you wish the criminal record check request to be sent to.

7. Identity Verification

Facial Accreditation uses AI to verify the candidate’s identity (commonly used when you cannot verify a candidate's ID in-person). If Facial Accreditation fails, they will then have to complete a manual verification.

Manual ID verification is selected for instances when the Hiring Manager must be physically present with the candidate to manually verify their identity.
