In the initial stages of a background checking engagement, Elaine works closely with PeopleCheck’s Business Solutions Team to oversee and ensure the client’s account on our candidate and client management system, PRIVI, and any other required technology are in place.

Prior to her employment with PeopleCheck, Elaine was a Project Manager for an internet marketing company. In this role, Elaine developed extensive knowledge and background in creating and using online systems and this has been invaluable at PeopleCheck, specifically in the development and improvements of internal online systems, and the support provided to clients and candidates to troubleshoot any issues as they may arise. Further, this role enhanced Elaine’s skills in the world of online research, imperative in any background checking environment.

Throughout her career, much of Elaine’s experience has involved delivering high quality and consistent customer service, in line with client expectations. This focus has been invaluable in the ongoing development of background checking services offered to PeopleCheck’s clients and candidates.
