F and G Sourcing Specialist is a registered MIE agent

Background Screening Checks and Verifications are often requested by employers on job candidates for employment screening, especially on candidates seeking a position that requires high security or a position of trust, such as in a school, hospital, financial institution, airport, and government.

  • It is also known as Vetting, Background Checks, Suitability Checks and Probity Checks. This is the process of looking up and authenticating various pieces of personal and confidential information on an individual or an organisation.
  • Information gathered pertaining to an individual or organisation can be used to verify that all is truthful and transparent about their credentials and eliminate possible risks. 

Academic qualifications, previous employment confirmations including capabilities to perform job responsibilities and character references help to eliminate potential hiring risks.

  • As MIE agents verifications are in line with the latest legislation, requiring the signed consent of the individual before the checks being conducted both in South Africa and Internationally.
  • MIE also offers several checks that can be conducted against suppliers/vendors.
