Which DBS check do I need? – Taxidermist

To work as a taxidermist in the UK you will need to undergo a basic DBS check to verify your suitability to work in the role.

A basic DBS is a statutory check carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service on behalf of the Home Office.

Your work as a taxidermist will bring you into engagement with the public where you will have a degree of influence therefore your recruitment is subject to the results of your DBS check.

DBS checks are a legal measure established with the introduction of the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act.

The act sets out four types of DBS checks UK employers must use for different roles. Those working with unsupervised or particularly close contact with the public will need to take an enhanced level of check.

DBS check categories are:

  • Basic DBS
  • Standard DBS
  • Enhanced DBS
  • Enhanced DBS with barring lists

A DBS check for a taxidermist does not require the deepest level of check. In role, your interaction with the public will be limited so you will need a basic DBS check.

A basic DBS for a taxidermist will require a search to verify if you have any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions. Your CRB check can be requested by you or your employer.

We support organisations and individuals to complete DBS checks quickly and easily online.
