All employers are required to carry out checks, mostly as a legal requirement, but some of our roles require additional checks because of the customers we work with.
What pre employment checks are required?
It is a legal requirement that we ensure anyone we employ is legally entitled to work in the UK. We will ask you for evidence of your eligibility if you are offered a role and check the documents you provide to ensure we are compliant with the law. More information on what documents you will need.
Other checks you need will depend on the role you have applied for. References, a work health assessment, a DBS check (formerly called a CRB check) and evidence of qualifications are often required.
We will let you know what is needed if you are offered a role and a member of our recruitment team will contact you to go through the checks.
Do I have to disclose a criminal record?
This depends on the role that you are applying for and whether or not it is covered by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act.
Certain roles which involve working directly with children or vulnerable adults require disclosure of convictions otherwise considered spent. We will give guidance if this is required.
