Where a job involves working with vulnerable groups such as children, or where government contracts are involved, as part of our safeguarding and vetting procedures applicants who are offered employment will be subject to a criminal record check (known as a Disclosure) before the appointment is confirmed. This check is undertaken by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
Having a criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working with us – this will depend on the nature of the position and the circumstances and background to your offence. Any information provided is kept confidential and seen only by those directly involved in the recruitment process. See the DBS website for more information.
