Dudley Council is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
A CRB check is an impartial and confidential document that details an individual’s record, and their suitability for certain work, especially that involve vulnerable adults and children.
For posts where there is contact with, or access to personal records relating to children, young people and vulnerable adults, the job advertisement and person specification will specify that a CRB check is a requirement.
If you apply for a post that requires a CRB check you will be asked to bring to the interview evidence of your identity that will satisfy CRB requirements.
The job description will confirm whether a standard or enhanced level of disclosure is required:
- Standard disclosure: contains details of both spent and unspent convictions, as well as cautions, reprimands and final warnings held on the Police National Computer. Lists held by government departments of those banned from working with vulnerable groups are also searched.
- Enhanced disclosure: contains the same information as a standard disclosure but also includes non-conviction information from local police records if thought to be relevant to the post applied for.
