If you want to work as a personal assistant you will need to take a statutory DBS check to confirm you are suitable for the role. Personal assistants work extremely closely with their clients and occupy a position of trust so a DBS check is an essential part of recruitment.

This statutory vetting measure for frontline roles was established in 1974 with the introduction of the1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act.

DBS checks are a formal check for any criminal records carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service.

A basic DBS check for a personal assistant will involve a statutory search for any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions. This is a first tier check so it won’t involve any spent convictions.

DBS checks exist to safeguard the public, particularly children and vulnerable adults from those who are unsuitable for public-facing roles.

Those who come into close contact with children or vulnerable adults are subject to the most comprehensive checks.

A basic DBS check for a personal assistant is a lower level check which either you or your employer can request.

We can support you to complete your basic DBS check online or you can talk to us about how we can help you to complete your bulk applications if you are an organisation. Call today on 0333 030 0446 or visit our home page to find out more.
