Bank managers are required to undergo a standard DBS check when applying for a role. A standard DBS check for a bank manager will involve a search for any unspent or spent convictions, cautions, reprimands or warnings in existence on the Police National Computer.
The CRB check will be carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service and can only be requested by your employer.
What happens during a standard DBS check for a bank manager?
If your criminal record is clear, your DBS certificate will show each search returned no information.
UK banks are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). If there are records listed on your DBS certificate and your role is FCA approved, your records will be considered in terms of the level of dishonesty shown – even if your convictions are now spent.
Each application will be assessed on a case by case basis, with particular weighting given to honesty, integrity and reputation. This level of vetting is a statutory requirement to ensure your potential employer can feel confident your are the right person for a role where you will be dealing with other people’s finances.
