Start on the right foot

Mercury’s On-boarding module provides an automated, customisable system for transitioning candidates into their work environment. There are a multitude of activities to get a new employee ‘work ready’, and typically a number of parts of your organization that need to be involved, including HR, Payroll, IT, Procurement… the list goes on.

Variation of Employment Module
Change of Employee Status

Variations to employment typically out-number recruitment transactions 5 to 1. These changes require some degree of authorization, by using e-Recruit’s approvals processes these are managed ‘on-line’ and are fully auditable. This system can interface to existing payroll systems to provide even greater efficiency, improved data accuracy and reduced manual effort.

Termination Module
Complete the cycle

Allows an employee to complete an online resignation form and sends it to the appropriate department (i.e. Payroll). Generate a confirmation letter to the employee along with notifications to the IT/Security/HR departments outlining which equipment may need to be returned. An exit interview forms part of the process.

Australian National Police History Checks

Fit2Work allows you to login and perform National Police History Checks online for prospective/current staff and volunteers without having to engage in a third party to help, therefore reducing processing time. A large percentage of checks are returned instantly and all 8 police jurisdictions in Australia are interrogated. (Federal, NSW, VIC, QLD, SA, NT, WA, TAS).
Fit2Work will allow you to track and manage the status of all of your checks and automatically creates a database that you can search and schedule future refresher checks.

Anti-Money Laundering & Counter-Terrorism Financing

Australia’s extensive legislation has tightened the net around individuals presenting a risk in regard to money laundering and/or financing terrorism. Fit2Work’s solution assists in authenticating the identity of individuals and reduces the likelihood of identity theft and fraud. Fit2Work utilises comprehensive identity databases to electronically confirm identity and ensure AML & CTF compliance.

Fit2Work has a direct link to the AHPRA database and we can check each and every clinician’s AHPRA registration on a daily basis. The system will notify you daily of any changes in registration and allow you to maintain a fully equipped and registered workforce.

Bankruptcy & National Insolvency

If an individual is bankrupt or has entered into a personal insolvency agreement they are automatically disqualified from managing corporations or being a director. We will search the National Personal Insolvency Index (NPI) for details of creditors’ petitions, debt agreements, personal insolvency agreements, bankruptcies, insolvent deceased estates, control orders and authorities in relation to breaches of the corporations act.


This check is designed to search for banned securities and futures representatives or AFS banned persons. Fit2Work filters the ASIC register for those persons who are banned and/or disqualified from involvement in the management of a corporation, or banned from practising in the financial services industry under the Corporations Act.

Employment History

We’ve been conducting ‘Employment History’ checks for 16 years and value the need to ensure a candidates CV adds up. Positions of employment including dates and the likelihood of re-employment will be verified with appropriate officers at past places of employment.

Via Fit2Work, the Department of Immigration and Citizenship can provide verification of a foreign national’s current visa status and give comprehensive details of their entitlement to work.

Fit2Work will check an individual’s ARPA qualification or disqualification from important roles within the Australian authorised deposit-taking, general insurance and superannuation industries due to conviction for an offence involving dishonest conduct or bankruptcy.

ASIC Banned & Disqualified Persons

Fit2Work screens AFS disqualified persons, securities representatives and future representatives from the Australian Securities Investment Commission (ASIC) Banned and Disqualified Register. The ASIC register details a person’s disqualification from managing an organisation under the Corporations Act in addition to determining limitations from running corporations, Fit2Work will also coordinate an advanced personal name search to advise you of previous roles held including an applicant’s commencement and termination dates.
