Telesales executives in the UK are subject to statutory background checks called DBS checks.
DBS checks are a mandatory measure for public-facing roles in the UK under the terms of the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act.
There are lots of roles across all industries that must undergo the same degree of vetting during recruitment. The purpose of DBS checks is to safeguard the public from those who may be unsuitable for frontline roles.
DBS checks are carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service on behalf of the Home Office.
A DBS check for a telesales executive is a basic DBS check. The search will verify if you have any criminal convictions or conditional cautions. Spent convictions will not be included in the search and your employer has no legal right to request you disclose any spent convictions.
Following the search, you will receive a DBS certificate by post and online. The DBS certificate will display any results found and must be shown to your employer to complete recruitment.
