Enhanced DBS Advice

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm getting a lot of tree inspection work at schools across the UK, and I'm looking to get an enhanced DBS check.

I was wondering if anyone knows the process of doing this when self-employed, as many websites I have been on require an organization to apply for you.

 

I am being advised to get the enhanced one instead of the basic one.

Can anyone advise on this?

 

Many thanks

Get the enhanced check then pay for the yearly register this will give you a number you give to the schools, you never have to fill the forms again and always have a upto date dbs check

But as I'm self employed, how do I go about this? Every website tells me I cannot get the enhanced check as an individual, an organization has to get one for me.. I have no organization to do this!

 

Quoted from a DBS check website:

 

Standard and Enhanced DBS (CRB) Checks are only available for organisations to apply for on behalf of their employees/contractors.

This is stipulated by the DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) head office. Therefore under no circumstances can any DBS (CRB) checking company organise Standard or Enhanced DBS checks for individuals.
