The APPII platform allows individuals to create dynamic career profiles which are verified using blockchain technology. These ‘Intelligent Profiles’ represent the first time in the global recruitment industry that candidates can use blockchain technology to verify qualifications, career history, and other career achievements.
For recruiters, this collaboration not only provides the reassurance that all information on a candidates’ application is accurate, but also significantly reduces the cost and time to hire – a major benefit to employers, particularly in the public sector and financial services, where extensive personal background checks take place.
For candidates, the blockchain-based Intelligent Profiles act as an assurance that they will be measured on their achievements, rather than the format of their CV.
Individuals can add their education, professional training, and work experience to their Intelligent Profile, and use QR codes to record continuing professional development and course attendance. Every assertion added to the platform can be verified by the relevant institution or employer and stored securely and permanently, completely free of charge.
The platform uses biometric identification to ensure the validity of candidates. Going far beyond basic identity verification, APPII’s technology uses biometric scanning to compare a selfie taken on its mobile application with official photographic identification.
Gary McKay, Managing Director and Founder of APPII commented,“Our aim has long been to help maximise candidates’ potential, and Intelligent Profiles not only offer individuals the opportunity to create a blockchain verified CV for the first time, but also use them to apply for roles through the Technojobs website.”
Anthony Sherick, Director of Technojobs, added, “We are delighted to partner with the APPII platform and be the first jobsite in the world to offer blockchain verified CV’s to employers.
Technojobs candidates will also have the opportunity to create a verified CV. We recognise the significant benefits this will bring to the hiring market and recruitment process if candidate details can be verified prior to job application.”
