What is an Adverse media check?

  • An Adverse Media Check is the process of checking and screening the background of an individual for any links that involve them in any kind of unlawful activity.
  • An Adverse media check solution provides a search of thousands of media platforms allowing organisations to lookup candidates.

Why would a company perform an Adverse Media Check?

The reason employers would want to do an adverse media check on their candidates is to see if there are any articles relating to them. They look for articles that involve terrorism, drug trafficking, fraud, and other serious crimes.

An organisation will want to carry out an adverse media check so that the company's reputation is not at risk by potentially having a candidate that has committed a serious crime.
