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
