  • I can totally understand them wanting to do criminal record checks on people but I think they have a cheek demanding references. This is not paid work after all.

  • Yes they do

  • Yes they do

  • Checks are important not only vocationally but you are working with vulnerable persons.

  • It requires a questionnaire to be completed and asks for any pre-employment to be noted.

  • Related questions (more answers below):

  • All they need is a suitable reference from your previous employer etc

  • I don't think I was asked to provide that information. However I have a current DBS certificate which is available on line.

  • I managed to find the volunteer work through family and was simply asked questions when I expressed my interest in working there, so I cannot say with certainty if they perform background checks.

  • Voluntary forms, all questions from jobcentre plus

  • Unsure what or if they require background checks for staff or volunteers but they do require 2 references for volunteers applying to work for them
