We are committed to robust recruitment and selection procedures to ensure that all staff and volunteers have been appropriately screened prior to appointment. Ensuring we do everything we can to prevent appointing people who may pose a risk to our most vulnerable service users, is an essential part of safeguarding. Many of our roles require staff to hold and maintain Disclosure and Barring Services (DBS) checks and are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. The requirement for this will be stated in both the advert and the job description for each role this applies to.  For more information on these, please follow the links below:
