ycare is an online community that connects people seeking and offering home-based services. We take safety seriously. As a Mycare worker, you must complete a few trust and safety verifications before you can apply for jobs.
Email and Phone Verifications
Email and phone verifications are done in the signup process, these will be verified via a verification code sent to each of the above.
When you are creating a Mycare profile, it is mandatory to complete a police vetting form. You will be sent this in your introduction email, to be completed and returned alongside two forms of ID, one being a photo ID and another being an address verification.
Here is a User Guide To Filling out a Police Vetting Form.
We will submit these on your behalf, at no additional cost.
We do not accept police vetting or Ministry of Justice checks that have been self-submitted or completed by other companies. As “the New Zealand Police Vetting Service cannot guarantee the integrity of the information...information released in a vetting result may vary depending on the purpose of the vetting request.”- NZ Police Vetting Service
What happens if I have a conviction?
When you create your profile at Mycare you consent to Police Vetting and indicate you do not have any criminal or traffic convictions. You will not be able to have an account with Mycare.
Please keep in mind you may be covered by the Clean Slate Scheme, so feel free to contact the Mycare team with any queries.
You can find our Terms of Service here for more information.
The information contained in a Police Vetting check remains the property of you. Mycare will maintain complete confidentiality and ensure the information about any criminal or traffic conviction history is always used solely for the purposes for which it is intended.
A police vetting record can show your criminal record and any contact you’ve had with the police that may be relevant to someone seeking support.
Profile Picture and Bio
To have a complete and visible profile on Mycare you need a profile picture and a bio(self-description). This is included in our trust and safety as they are key points to clients trying to find appropriate workers. It gives clients a better idea of who you are!
