To become a legal executive you will need to take a standard DBS check to prove your suitability for the role.

DBS checks are statutory criminal record checks carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service to ensure the public are adequately safeguarded from those who are unsuitable for public-facing roles.

Under the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act all frontline roles are subject to a DBS check.

A DBS check for a legal executive is a mid-level, standard DBS check, stronger checks are reserved for those who have close and unsupervised contact with children.

A standard DBS check for a legal executive is still a robust check covering any unspent or spent convictions, cautions, reprimands or warnings in existence on the Police National Computer.

You won’t be able to request this check for yourself. Standard DBS checks can only be applied for by your employer. Your employer will request you fill in the DBS form in your own time, send it to the DBS and show them the DBS certificate you receive in order to complete the recruitment process.

Without this vetting measure, you will not be able to work as a legal executive in the UK. The check is also necessary for the professional industry bodies you will want to join.
