Is there something your applicant is not telling you that you’d want to know? All employers have the right to request a Basic Criminal Record Check on applicants and employees. Depending on where your applicant will be working and living will determine whether the check is carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service (England & Wales) or Disclosure Scotland (Scotland). This is something you can select on the Platform.

A Basic Criminal Record Check provides details of any unspent convictions. For some roles this check is a mandatory compliance requirement.

Checks are typically completed in 48 hours. You’ll be notified when it’s complete with an email indicating if the result is clear or not and a certificate from the relevant provider will be sent to the applicant in the post.

Some job roles, particularly those dealing with vulnerable people, have a higher compliance need for an Enhanced check, please see our section on Enhanced DBS Checks.

To get you set up on the system we will charge a one-off licence fee of £19.95 plus VAT. We will then set up a dedicated account for your organisation on our revolutionary HR platform. Each basic check will cost you £35.40 inc VAT.

  • Fast: You can request the check online in a matter of minutes. The certificate will be sent to you in the post typically within 48 hours. To make an even quicker decision, we will email you before it’s sent to indicate if the result is clear or not.
