What are DBS checks?

DBS checks help employers to make safer recruitment decisions by checking a prospective employee’s criminal history. Employers can request a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check as part of their recruitment process.

We understand it can be confusing to determine which level of DBS check is needed for each job role. That's why Spotlite has predefined job roles that are confirmed eligible for the appropriate level of DBS check.

Types of DBS checks:

Standard check
Is available for roles including court officers, employment within a prison, and Security Industry Authority (SIA) licences. It shows details of all spent and unspent convictions and adult cautions from the Police National Computer (PNC).
Enhanced check

Is available for specific duties eg, regularly caring for, training, supervising or being solely in charge of children, specified activities with adults in receipt of health care or social care services and applicants for gaming and lottery licences. It shows the same PNC information as the standard level certificate but also includes a check of information held by police forces.

Enhanced with barred

Is only available for those individuals who are carrying out regulated activity and a small number of positions e.g. prospective adoptive parents and taxi and Private Hire Vehicle (PHV) licences. It shows the same PNC information and check of information held by police forces as an enhanced level check but in addition will check against the children’s and/or adult’s barred lists.
