Background Check

Background Check of Candidates

Semac is Norway’s leading supplier of background checks. A background check is to verify and search for information that may have an impact on the recruitment process. A background check from Semac can reveal everything from irregularities related to CV, experience, competence and education to a history of far-reaching statements, violations of the Criminal Code, conflicts and reputational issues.
