Helping you make informed hiring decisions
Criminal Record checks may be more familiar to you under the titles of DBS checks or CRB checks. They investigate a candidate’s criminal history, revealing any record of past convictions, cautions, warnings, reprimands and more - depending on the level of check. Different roles require different levels of Criminal Record checks, so our specialist team can advise you if you are unsure.
We are an umbrella body with the DBS, meaning that we have direct access to initiate, track and obtain the results, and are inspected and audited to check our processes are compliant. Therefore, you can be sure that the service we provide will be as simple and efficient as possible.
Our e-Bulk service allows employers who want to check more than 10 candidates a year take control of the entire process. Clients are provided with their own secure control panel from which they can add new candidates, monitor the progress of their applications and - more importantly - see the results as they come in. Standard Disclosures are normally completed within 48 hours, whilst the Enhanced Disclosure ranges from 2 to 5 working days.
How Does it Work?
The entire process is undertaken online, simplifying the submission process and providing timely results via email.
When applying for checks, you can enter the basic details of the applicants to the system and this will notify them by email, to login and complete their application forms. The system sends them repeated reminders until the form is completed, so you don’t have to.
When you submit an online application form, it goes directly to the DBS. Our e-Bulk system also allows you to monitor the progress of each ongoing Enhanced and Standard check by clicking on the ‘Latest Status’, keeping you in the know always.
Unlike other e-Bulk providers, there are no maximum or minimum number of checks required and no registration fees. We will provide you with our welcome pack which contains all the information you’ll need to start processing your applications.
If you would like to know more about this service, feel free to contact us and one of our team members will happily advise you. Access our form here: Multiple DBS Check Application Form | DBS Checks Online
Our e-Bulk DBS service offers the following disclosures:
Available through the Disclosure and Barring Service but covering England and Wales, it allows employers to confirm if a prospective employee has any current convictions. Basic Disclosures contain details of unspent convictions according to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 which are held on central police records or will state if there are no such convictions.
Our fastest turnaround is available on these checks via the e-Bulk service, with direct submission to the Disclosure and Barring Service allowing us to normally have results within 48 hours. However, Standard Disclosures are only available for certain occupations and for entry into professions as specified in the Exceptions Order to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (ROA) 1974. Standard Disclosures show current and spent convictions, cautions, reprimands and warnings held on the Police National Computer.
This is the highest level of check, only applied to professionals with positions that involve contact with vulnerable groups, including children (e.g. caring for, supervising, training or being in sole charge of children or vulnerable adults). Enhanced Disclosures contain the same information as the Standard Disclosure but with the addition of any relevant and proportionate information held by the local police forces.
Children’s Barred List
This can only be accessed when ordering an Enhanced DBS Check and working with children. The list checks for anyone who has been barred from working with children and is not a full disclosure
Adults Barred List
This can only be accessed when ordering an Enhanced DBS Check and working in certain roles such as caring for vulnerable adults. The list checks for anyone who has been barred from working with vulnerable adults and is not a full disclosure
Eurocom has access to fasttrack the results of the children’s barred list. We can instantly find out if the candidate can be found on the children’s barred list and advise accordingly. Again, the initial results of this pre-employment check will not be the full disclosure but may allow your candidate to work on site supervised until the full result of the disclosure comes back.
ISA First Adults Check
Similarly to List 99, Eurocom has access to fast track the result of the adults barred list. This is slightly different as we have to wait for the application to be received by the DBS so we can use the reference number to do the search. The result is not instant but usually comes back within 24 hours. This is not the result of the disclosure but the result of the adults barred list which may allow your candidate to work on site supervised until the full result of the disclosure comes back
Require a bespoke check?
Depending on the occupation and role of an employee, different screening standards can be required. Using our extensive experience, we can create bespoke check packages, which ensures your employees are properly vetted for their particular role.
