An Employment History check is a way for a future employer to review referees for job applicants. Employers can ask for employment history from you along with explanations for gaps in employment. They can ask for between 1 and 10 years of employment history.

You will be required to supply information to the employer including company name, length of your employment, reason for leaving, and referee details for each. 

How to complete the process

You will be asked to select the role-type for each of your previous positions, starting with the most recent. You will be able to select either full-time, part-time or contract. You will then be asked to enter the company and referee details.

If there are any gaps in your employment history you will be prompted to provide a brief explanation as to why.
