CRB certificates have prevented job offers being made to unsuitable individuals
are saved during your recruitment process when you use online CRB checks
of paper applications submitted by organisations to CRB contain errors
You've sent your manual CRB check off in the post, but it's been weeks, or even months and you're still waiting.
Your application has been rejected due to human error, and you have to start the process again.
You haven't carried out CRB checks on past employees, and you've been held liable for an incident.
As an employer, you have a duty of care to protect and safeguard vulnerable people. We all have a part to play.
Make the right decision.
It's critical you know exactly who you're employing, especially if they're working with children or vulnerable adults. There's no excuse. Don't risk liability.
CRB checks have been replaced by DBS checks. CRB online enables you to quickly and efficiently check the criminal record of a potential or existing employee or volunteer, so you can make informed recruitment decisions.
You can choose the level of CRB check you need to perform depending on the role that is being applied for. To check if an individual has any spent or unspent convictions, cautions, warnings or reprimands, a standard CRB check will be sufficient. If you need to know if an applicant is barred from working with children or vulnerable adults, you'll need an enhanced CRB check to check barred lists. Enhanced CRB checks also show if Police have entered any additional information.
It's not a legal requirement to undertake a CRB check for every employee who works in a regulated activity with children or vulnerable adults, but, it is a criminal offence to knowingly hire, or continue to employ, someone who is listed on the Disclosure and Barring Service's (DBS) barred lists. Don't wait for a person to have harmed someone to know. Fulfil your duty of care and protect the vulnerable.
Compared to manual CRB checks, which can often take weeks or months to return, online CRB checks are fast and efficient, removing human error and avoiding application rejections. Use CRB online to free up time for your teams and to cut costs. You can check the background of an applicant in a matter of second, using a single system. Quickly assess individuals so you can make informed recruitment decisions.
Not only do online CRB checks help protect people who need it, they also help protect the reputation of your organisation. Online CRB checks enable you to demonstrate that you've supported 'Right to Work' processes and that you have a robust recruitment process; so you remain compliant.
This year, there have been no delays to the applications at all which is completely down to the GBG service.
We had a large number of Enhanced Disclosures to complete in a short period of time. GBG KnowYourPeople allowed us to efficiently process and track each application through to the DBS; and once complete receive a notification when the Disclosure was completed and whether it contained content or was clear. None of this would have been possible if we were managing the checks on the paper based application forms.
The new GBG KnowYourPeople system has made my life so much easier. I can now complete DBS applications twice as fast which has resulted in a much quicker criminal record checking process. GBG KnowYourPeople is the most responsive and user-friendly system I have ever used.
GBG KnowYourPeople has made the application process a lot simpler for applicants, employers, and the team at Assist HR. One fantastic advantage of the system is our ability to view results, in terms of clear/not clear, before the actual disclosure is dispatched. The system can then also provide us with an official letter confirming the results, which can then be used to speed up the recruitment process.
