I'd like to request a DBS check for an employer

Thank you.

If your employer requires a criminal convictions check or your work, either as a paid employee or as a volunteer, will bring you into contact with children or vulnerable adults you may have to complete a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) basic check.
