The Enhanced DBS Check will show details of all cautions, final warnings and reprimands, as well as all spent and unspent convictions held on an individual's criminal record. It will additionally detail any information held by local police which it is felt would be relevant to the position you are applying for.

- Those working in support roles in healthcare, such as a cleaner in a care home
- Financial Services
- Education - classroom assitants and parent helpers
- Admissions clerk in a childrens clinic or hospital
- Contractors on regulated sites (eg schools)
