DBS Check Council Administrator | Council Administrator DBS Check | DBS & CRB Check for Council Administrators

Start my check

You may be surprised to learn, council administrators are required to undergo a basic DBS check. DBS checks are statutory criminal record checks carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service.

Under the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, employers across the UK with staff working in roles which have a level of engagement with the public, have a duty to ensure employees are DBS checked in line with the measures set out in the act.

DBS checks are necessary for a wide range of roles to ensure the public, particularly children and vulnerable adults, are properly protected.

A basic DBS check for a council administrator requires a search for any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions.

This CRB check is a first-tier check which can be requested by your employer or yourself. It does not involve a search for spent convictions or anything more than unspent convictions and conditional cautions. Your employer has no legal right to ask you to disclose anything more.

If you do have any unspent convictions or conditional cautions, they will be detailed on your DBS certificate. If you don’t have any records, the fields on your DBS certificate will be blank.

If you need a basic DBS check for a council administrator or another role, we can provide a range of support services to support you or your organisation. You can even complete your basic DBS check online with us. Call today on 0333 030 0446 to find out more, or visit our home page now.
