Background checks, especially in the care sector, enable you to make sure the people in your care are protected. As an employer, your worst nightmare is one of your employees or volunteers endangering the safety of someone in your care. The best way to ensure you are choosing the right people for your organisation is to use a background screening company before you make an offer.

Strategic Partnership

Ansvar Risk has a strategic partnership with AIS International for employee and volunteer background police checks. AIS International has the experience, knowledge and skill to give you the results you need to make informed business and hiring decisions. We believe AIS International provides an excellent service, are cost effective and we encourage our customers to use their online portal for obtaining background police checks.

Having this strategic partnership enables Ansvar Risk to provide customised solutions to our customers that are consistent with their requirements for the work that they do.


To understand more about the importance of having background checks carried on on potential employees and volunteers, we discussed FAQ’s with Jim Dorash and Len Hayward, both from AIS International, our background checks partners. Please note this recording is the same as the podcast highlighted above.

  1. What are the top 3 items hiring managers and their organisations look for when vetting staff and volunteers?
  2. Are there any observations of background checks conducted in our core sectors, such as faith and non-for-profit? Len Hayward noted that they are very involved in the not-for-profit space and have seen a large increase in the amount of volunteers background checks submitted.
  3. Provide examples of large organisations using the portal and how easy they find it.
  4. What happens if information comes back that is not to the liking of the hiring organisation?
  5. Provide a case study of an organisation that did not undertake background checks and the consequence.

7. How easy and secure is the AIS online portal?
8. How do you counter potential of a cyber-attack in the future?
