Background and credit checks

Mark (Mark , Sun, 07/24/2016 - 14:50



I'm wondering if EPSO or the recruiting DGs carry out credit checks and what kind of references are required to get a job?


I live in the UK and large employers here generally ask for address histories to check your credit-worthiness even if you apply for a role which is unrelated to fthe financial sector. Does anyone know if EPSO or DGs use such methods?


Also when I submitted my details through the EPSO website, I gave a detailed work history. Will EPSO ever make contact with those employers or is that left for the DGs to do if/when they decide to interview you?


Any advice or sources of info would be gratly appreciated.


Thank you,

Dear Mark,

Thank you for your post.

In the past EPSO has not run a credit check on candidates and we expect that this will be the case going forward as well. Also, they do not make contact with the employers provided through your CV.

Kind regards,
