Start my check

Working in mountain rescue is a unique job that will bring you into close contact with the public whilst in incredibly vulnerable situations. As a result, you will find your recruitment is subject to a statutory criminal record check called a DBS check.

DBS checks are a comprehensive level of vetting, in operation for all frontline roles in the UK.

Operating under the terms of the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, the Disclosure and Barring Service carry out DBS checks to verify a person’s suitability for a role.

The DBS’ mandate is to protect the public from those who are not right for frontline positions so any work which involves contact with the UK public is vetted in this way. Those who will come into close and often unsupervised contact with children and vulnerable adults in role, are subject to the strongest CRB checks.

As an employee working in mountain rescue you will hold position of significant trust and be called on to work with all members of society so you will need to take a deep DBS check called an enhanced DBS check?

An enhanced DBS check for mountain rescue will involve a search for any spent and unspent convictions, reprimands, cautions, warnings and non-conviction information held by relevant police forces.

Enhanced DBS checks can only be requested by your employer. To understand more about enhanced DBS checks and how they will affect your application for mountain rescue visit: unlock.org.
