Referencing checking made simple.

Xref brings ease, security and value to the recruitment process. The online, automated solution delivers the data-driven candidate insights organisations need to make smart, confident hiring decisions. Its customer-centric platform and team enable the flexibility and scalability its global clients require to hire the best talent, quickly.

Founded in 2009, Xref is the product of a frustrated recruitment professional and an MBA-qualified technologist who teamed up to improve the efficiency, consistency and reliability of the reference checking process. By reducing time wasted, Xref offers recruitment and HR professionals more time to spend on strategic elements of their role, adding greater value to their organisation.

Xref puts candidates in the driving seat, offering them transparency and the opportunity to manage the progress of their references. This, coupled with the online nature of the solution, delivers significantly improved efficiency, while collecting more data, protecting clients from the threat of fraudulent candidates and reducing the risk of any data and discrimination breaches.

Xref improves hiring efficiency with a reliable solution that offers ease of use while collecting more data and reducing the threat of fraud. Here’s how it works in three simple steps:
1) Employer adds candidate to Xref: data privacy measures kick in
2) Candidate drives the process, sharing referee details
3) Referees provide feedback, typically within 24-32 hrs

Headquartered in Sydney, the ASX listed organisation has since expanded into APAC, Europe and North America, with the flexibility of the product architecture enabling Xref to tailor the solution to suit the needs and demands of each market.
