Each and every Household Staff Candidate that we place has been DBS checked and certified. This disclosure is central to our safe and thorough screening policy.
Only those who have been a UK resident for more than six months will be CRB checked. In cases where a candidate has resided in the UK for a shorter period, we ensure, insofar as it is possible, that a police check is carried out in their home country.
The process of DBS disclosure may require up to 16 weeks to complete. In certain circumstances candidates may start work prior to this period being fulfilled, but this will be with the understanding that they furnish the required information as soon as possible.
To find out more information about DBS checks, please see www.dbs.gov.uk.
In addition, we make verbal references compulsory and speak to past employers before arranging interviews for candidates.
