DBS Applicant Guidance

We are proud to work with some of the country's leading employers and governing bodies for the provision of pre-employment and criminal records checks.

This page links to further information that may be useful for DBS applicant guidance. For further information please feel free to contact us. For a basic guide detailing who can apply for a DBS check, the eligibility criteria and time taken for a check, please watch the video below.

An effective recruitment checking process is becoming more important and our service enables employers and organisations to make more thorough recruitment checks, particularly for positions that involve regular contact with children and vulnerable adults.
