Which DBS check do I need? – Bank Clerk

Did you know a bank clerk in the UK may be asked to take a basic DBS check when applying for a role? A basic DBS check for a bank clerk will verify whether you have any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions.
A basic check for a bank clerk is a base level CRB check used to check your suitability for the position.

Why is a DBS for a bank clerk necessary?

In 1974, the UK government passed the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act to safeguard the public, in particular children and vulnerable adults, from potential harm. There are four levels of DBS checks in operation.

A basic check is only a first tier check. It will go no further than searching for any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions.

There are an enormous number of other frontline jobs in the UK which also require a basic DBS check. Chefs, gardeners, civil servants, estate agents and mechanics are just some of the many roles which also ask for a basic DBS check.
