Candidate Interviewing

Verbal reference checks both here in New Zealand and Overseas

While Automotive Employment NZ always complete verbal references on our hires, many employers dislike completing verbal references, particularly so when those references need to be completed after hours such as with offshore referees in differing time zones.  Commonly the task of completing references gets delegated.   Here at Automotive Employment NZ Ltd, we are uniquely positioned to ensure references are completed promptly, accurately with the right referees identified so why not give the task to us?

Even when an employer hires a candidate of their own accord Automotive Employment NZ Ltd can provide a service to complete this task on your behalf.  These reference checking services are completed by expert consultants.

Automotive Employment NZ carries out the required two or three references cost-effectively. A welcome relief to the stressed-out HR manager or line manager we’re sure!

The written version of the verbal references will be supplied promptly via email and typically the references ask the 26 most important questions employers need to be answered.

Simply contact us and let’s get the references underway.

Police checks
