DBS Update Service for Applicants
Why not join the Update Service when you next apply for a DBS Check, and you may never need to apply for another one again!
What is the DBS Update Service?
For an annual fee of £13 (free for Volunteers) you can have your DBS certificate kept up-to-date and take it with you from role to role, where the same type and level of check is required.
By joining this service you could save yourself enormous amounts of time and money depending on how many DBS checks you have needed in the past.
What's more, your employers won't need to wait for your DBS applications to be processed as you'll already have it!
Benefits to you:
- Save time and money
- One DBS certificate is all you may ever need
- Take your DBS certificate from role to role within the same workforce
- You are in control of your DBS certificate
- Get ahead of the rest and apply for jobs DBS pre-checked
If you wish to join the Update Service you can do so within 30 calendar days of the DBS certificate issue date by visiting the DBS website.
