CoverCard was the vision of Jon Gwynne, a boilermaker in the Pilbara. Jon had many tickets and licences that were hard to manage and left his wallet overflowing.
Jon also knew that employers were mainly only interested in what tickets he had and that whilst companies had systems to manage this information there was nothing aimed at helping workers. CoverCard is designed to help solve this problem.
Your CoverCard contains a summary of your licences and qualifications, images of these (if provided) and your resume. You can view an example CoverCard on our home page.
Your personal information is encrypted and highly secure. We use the best available security to protect your information. Images that you provide of your licences and qualifications are encrypted and stored using Amazon Web Services, the best security available in the market.
We do not ask for any banking, taxation or financial details. In this way you can be even more confident in the security of your information.
Your profile and CoverCard are not publically available and can only be viewed by those you give permission. This keeps your information secure and gives you full control.
Your CoverCard is visible to employers if you choose to apply for a job. In addition you may choose to share your details with friends, colleagues, employers or others by entering their email address or by connecting your Facebook and LinkedIn accounts. You have full control.
By connecting your Facebook and LinkedIn accounts you are able to share your details with your friends and connections, recommend jobs, and invite them to join CoverCard. We know that networks and connections are important in finding jobs and building a career so this enables you to tap into your existing friends and colleagues. It is optional but it makes CoverCard a whole lot more useful to you.
No. We access only the information that we need to enable you to communicate with your friends and connections. We do not store any of this information, our system simply talks to Facebook and LinkedIn if and when you want to make contact with your friends and connections.

All our partners offer a product or service that may improve your CoverCard profile and therefore assist your career. Our vision is about making life better for Australia’s workers so we have sought partners that will offer some form of discount or incentive to our CoverCard members.
Once logged in, there is a page where you can provide us feedback. Our team will endeavour to answer your query as soon as possible. If you are not yet a member you can use our Contact Us page.
The licence and qualification database is copyright information so you cannot copy or replicate the database without our permission. This is also covered in our Terms of Service.
CoverCard is a free service for workers. We offer employers a paid service (currently $49 / job) to use our filtering and matching system. If an employer posts a job that matches your qualifications you will be notified.
