To work as a secretary you will need to take a basic DBS check. A DBS check is a statutory check to verify your suitability for a frontline role.
A basic DBS check for a secretary will require a search to verify whether you have any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions.
The search will be conducted by the Disclosure and Barring Service under the terms of the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act. The act makes it a lawful requirement for DBS checks to be included in vetting procedures for a large number of public-facing roles.
Your employer will need to see the DBS certificate you will receive from the DBS, once the DBS check is complete. The DBS certificate will detail any information found and you will need it to complete the recruitment process.
A DBS check for a secretary is a low-level search which can be requested by you or your employer on your behalf.
CRB checks are necessary to ensure all members of the public, particularly children and vulnerable adults, are kept safe.
