(The ID verifier cannot be a relative or someone in your household, even if they are your employer. It will need to be someone else from the organisation or the contractor of the services which requires the DBS check to be done). We will contact the the employer to verify the candidate’s ID documents. If we are unable to get hold of the employer or the employer does not get back to us within one week we will cancel the application and charge a £12 admin fee.

Please ensure you are applying for the correct level of check, cancelled applications due to incorrect level of check will incur an administration charge of £12.
