All offers of employment are subject to a number of checks being made satisfactorily to the College. Once a conditional offer has been made, the College will undertake background checks, which include taking up your references, checking your identity, sending your Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) form for processing and conducting appropriate medical checks.
The time this takes varies from but we will try and get you to come into the College as soon as possible to check your ID and complete a DBS form. It is always a good idea to inform your referees beforehand so they will be expecting us to contact them, which can greatly speed up the process.
If your DBS check has not been returned by your start date, normally a risk assessment will be carried out by the department prior to you starting your role with us.
You will also be required to complete a medical form and may be required to undergo a health assessment, to ensure that you are fit to carry out the role and to let us know if there are any adjustments that we need to make to enable you to carry out your job.
