Applying for a new job? Do you know what you need to disclose to an employer?

Spent? Filtered? Basic DBS check? Standard or enhanced?

If you’ve got a criminal record and you’re applying for a new job or volunteering role, it’s important to know if and what you need to disclose and what will show-up if an employer does a DBS check.

Make the mistake of over or under-disclosing and you run the risk of your application being unsuccessful.

We’ve published a ‘What do I need to disclose for what job?form which can be used as a record of your convictions/cautions and when they’ll be spent/filtered and removed from your DBS certificate.

You can find all the information you need to complete the form on our information hub site but, if you’d prefer to go through it with one of our advisors, feel free to contact our helpline.
