Certsy is 100% owned by SEEK, Australia's #1 employment website. We operate as a separate business with our own brand and secure technology platform.
Our purpose is to help candidates to easily verify and share work-related credentials. Around 1 in 5 job seekers who apply on SEEK are now using Certsy.
Verifying upfront means that Certsy can vouch for the claims you make on SEEK, for example, that you have a valid driver's licence, or the right to work in Australia. This can give employers extra confidence in shortlisting you over other candidates.
Here's how verified job seekers appear to employers on SEEK:
Verifying and sharing credentials through Certsy is 100% optional. Regardless of whether you verify or not, employers still receive your job applications on SEEK. Importantly, you remain in full control of your information and what is shared.
Once you have verified and shared with SEEK, your verified credential result will appear on any subsequent job application provided that:
- Your Certsy verified result matches your stated answer to the employer role requirement question on the job ad.
- Your Certsy verified result matches the employer's criteria.
Currently, only employers who use the SEEK Candidate Management Centre will be able to view your verified credential result. Provided you have shared your result on SEEK, if all other requirements are met, your result will be displayed as part of your job application and displayed prominently with a blue Verified by Certsy tick.
