Start my check

Many staff working in information technology in the UK are surprised to discover they will need a basic DBS check as part of the vetting process.

A DBS check is a statutory criminal record check carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service, a public body sponsored by the Home Office. The DBS has a remit to keep the public safe.

Why do I need a DBS check?

Operating under measures set out in the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, DBS checks are used to protect the public, particularly children and adults, from those who are unsuitable for frontline roles.

Employees working in information technology have a degree of influence in role and most positions involve a level of interaction with the public so a basic DBS check is needed for any IT recruitment.

A basic DBS check for an information technology recruit will require a search for any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions.

All other frontline roles in the UK are subject to one of four types of CRB checks. To find out more about DBS checks for IT recruits visit: IT Sector.
