DBS checks are essential for all individuals who work with children aged 18 years and under. Individuals who work with children includes:-
- any individual in a position in which normal duties involve contact with people under 18 years of age
- an individual living at the premises at which child-minding or day care services are provided
A DBS check improves employment opportunities by verifying an individual’s credentials and providing evidence of their suitability to work with children; it is an essential pre-requisite to securing a reputable position with a reputable employer. A satisfactory DBS check also enables potential employers to make safer recruitment decisions by identifying candidates who may be unsuitable for certain work, especially work that involves children.
Obtaining a DBS check is relatively simple process. Candidates need to provide their childcare recruitment agency with two official forms of ID. For a small administration fee (generally), the agency will submit the DBS check to Civil & Corporate Ltd who will contact the candidate to verify the application and conduct all necessary checks.
