The DBS Check and How It Helps Employers and Recruiters:

The DBS Check and How It Helps Employers and Recruiters Employers and recruiters are always on the lookout for people who want to work for them and help contribute to the success of their companies. If an employer operates a business that specializes in providing care for individuals who are deemed as being vulnerable (children, the elderly and the disabled), then they should be extremely careful with who they hire because you never know when one or more of your potential employees could be hiding a secret from you. If you want to get to the bottom of an applicant’s criminal records and info, then you should have that person undergo a DBS check . DBS stands for Disclosure and Barring Service, and any background checks conducted by this body are done with the purpose of finding out more about an applicant’s history of criminal records. Applicants should never consider DBS checks as an invasion of their privacy because most companies in the United Kingdom are now required by law to have all applicants undergo this background check before they can be hired. Most of these checks are conducted by an umbrella body and the results usually take somewhere between two weeks and month before they can be produced. Once the results have been released, the umbrella body will then give the results to the employer or recruiter. The agency responsible for running the background test will not be allowed to tell the recruiter whether or not they should hire a person based on his DBS check results. That decision will be left entirely up to the employer. If he decides to hire an applicant despite knowing that the said applicant has a history of felony charges in his criminal record, then he will have no one else but himself to blame should anything go wrong. If you truly value the safety of your company, employees and clients, then you should not hire an individual once it has been discovered that he has a history of criminal charges or ones that are still pending because the risk is simply too great for you to take.
