The different levels of DBS checks available search for criminal records, additional reprimands or warnings, and suitability for working with vulnerable groups. They only identify an individual if that person has already been discovered to have done something in the past that caused them to be highlighted on a DBS search.
Our reference checks are designed to focus on:
- a) people whose online activity may not be illegal but are extremely inappropriate for the employer and the job or role applied for, and
- b) the disturbingly large group of people who are conducting illegal activities online
We would not suggest you conduct our checks instead of a DBS check, our recommendation would always be to do both.
