To apply for a job, you are required to have a DBS check to work.
Yes and also PVG checks. Didn't take very long, and immediate start after induction was completed and shadowing of another worker was completed also.
Unknown due to TUPE circumstances , but i expect they would do background checks
Takes ages to actually start work
Yes. Mears does the DBS and reference checks.
Mears carry out pre-employment background checks which are completed within 4 weeks.
I was interviewed in march ,but didn't start work until July ,the DBS took that long to complete.
PVG only and can take any time between 3 weeks to 3 months
There are thorough checks undertaken with the DBS, enhanced disclosure etc, must have a minimum of 2 shining references come back. It can vary on how long it takes for everything to be completed, I had problems hunting down old employers, so it took a few months for me.
Help jobseekers learn about the company by being objective and to the point.
