DBS Check Zoo Worker | Zoo Worker DBS Check | DBS & CRB Check for Zoo Workers

Start my check

Zoo workers in the UK can expect to be asked to complete a basic DBS check as part of the recruitment process. A DBS check is used by your employer to determine your suitability to work in the role because it is a frontline position.

DBS checks are a statutory search for criminal records carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service, unless you are in Scotland where the procedure is managed by Disclosure Scotland.

Zoo workers need to take a basic DBS check for a zoo worker because when working in the zoo you will have a degree of contact with the public.

What is a basic DBS check?

A basic DBS check for a zoo worker will search for any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions. The purpose of the check is to ensure the public, particularly vulnerable adults and children, are kept safe from those who are unsuitable for public-facing roles.

Under the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act all those who work in frontline roles must take a DBS check so there are tons of other positions in the UK which require the same level of background check.

This type of CRB check does not require you to disclose any spent convictions and your employer has no legal right to ask about anything more than any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions.
