DBS Recruiters

Firstly, thank you for being a DBS Lead recruiter/recruiter. We really appreciate the time you give in making your parishes safe.

Being a DBS recruiter is a role that comes with lots of responsibility. However, it can be a simple task with the correct guidance.

There may sometimes be reluctance to having a DBS check. This is sometimes because the person does not like computers or does not understand that a DBS check is there to protect them as well as protect others.

Please Note: We do not allow doing Basic checks as they only bring up unspent convictions, where as an enhanced DBS (if applicable) will bring all the spent convictions to your attention. Parishes who perform Basic checks or Electronic ID checks without our consent, will be charged for each one.

If a person has a conviction on file, it is possible for them to work in the church, we just need to put a risk assessment in place to keep everyone safe.
