In the UK, employers can check your criminal record no matter what role you apply for. This is called a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
For certain roles an employer can request a more detailed DBS check, for example if you’ll be working with children or in healthcare.
Your employer can still request a basic check if they cannot get a more detailed check for your role.
Your employer can ask you to request your own basic check.
It costs £23.
You can then show it to the person you’ll be working for.
