Company Background

Qualification Check exists for one reason – to protect the world from fake qualifications so that people can work, study and live in a safe and trusting environment. With global coverage in over 90 countries and 50,000 institutions, we help our customers meet their professional, career and life aspirations. We assist in the removal of barriers in social mobility across borders, cultures and societies.

Our brand mission feeds directly into our own culture of being collaborative, open and honest with one another, celebrating successes and helping each other to solve our individual and collective challenges. We truly believe we’re a great team because of this. We’ve been around for more than a decade, and in that time we’ve become a world leader in verifying academic and professional qualifications.

We do this by using simple and easy-to-use technology that gives both our individual customers and main clients the best experience possible. We save organisations save time and money, and help applicants can get into their next job role, or onto their next academic course hassle-free.

We’re growing fast – doubling the number of checks and our revenue year on year. Our customers help us to achieve this through their own growth, and this is where we need your polished people skills to give our clients a supportive, world-class service.
