Criminal Records Check

Some roles at the University require a Criminal Records Check. If you are offered a post which requires a criminal conviction check, your offer of appointment will be conditional upon an acceptable DBS certificate.

DBS checks

The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) helps employers to make safer recruitment decisions and prevent unsuitable people from working with vulnerable groups, including children.  It replaces the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA).

The following provides further information and guidance for applicants, existing members of staff and line managers in relation to completing DBS checks.
