Disclosure Baring Service (DBS Check)

by Eve Baker - Sage Accredited Partner

Administrative staff often handle sensitive information such as databases, pin numbers, cash and payments. The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) helps employers make safer recruitment decisions and prevent unsuitable people from working with vulnerable groups. It replaces the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA)

Business Nirvana suggest that when you hire a new member of staff in a position of responsibility that you undertake a DBS check. This should certainly so in the office, administrative environment or where persons are interacting with the public or fellow work mates.

Only employers and licensing bodies can request a DBS check.

Job applicants can’t do a criminal records check on themselves.

Instead, they can request a basic disclosure from Disclosure Scotland (you don’t have to be from Scotland to do this).

Needless to say, Business Nirvanas partners have all obtained a clean DBS check from the disclosure and barring service. For more information with regards to the disclosure barring service please see: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/disclosure-and-barring-service/about
