An Enhanced Disclosure Something Service (DBS) Check is the most detailed level of criminal check available. The Enhanced check contains the same information as a standard check but also includes a local police record check for relevant information. Where required, a Barred List check can be added to an Enhanced Disclosure – for instance, to check whether an applicant has been barred from working with children or adults.
It is important to note, only certain job roles are entitled to have this level of criminal history check carried out. You can use the DBS Website as a guideline or the DBS Eligibility tool to find out whether your applicant is eligible.
NB: If we are unsure of a job role provide to us by a client, we will reach out to the client to confirm details of the job role for eligibility purposes.
