We are committed to eliminating discrimination and valuing diversity within our workforce and recognise that discrimination is more likely to be experienced by particular groups in society. The Group uses the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) to help assess the suitability of applicants for specified positions of trust to ensure that precaution is taken in the recruitment of staff who will be working with vulnerable groups to help reduce security risk. Because of the nature of our work we sometimes require applicants for certain posts to undertake a DBS check. When this is required it will be clearly stated on the person specification and job advertisement for the role and may be discussed with you at interview. Even spent convictions will need to be disclosed by applicants for some roles.
