Yes they conduct thorough pre-employment checks including criminal convictions (DBS/PVG) and if there are convictions, a risk assessment will be conducted if there is a conviction to determine whether the offer should be withdrawn. They also obtain references, employment history and other checks. They don't take long if you complete the forms properly and soon after getting them and if you contact the referees

We usually required staff to get their DBS check to work and it takes about six weeks to complete.

This would depend on the role you are recruited in to. For regulated roles, following guidelines from criminal record check providers, we would conduct DBS or PVG checks, including SSSC checks in Scotland. All of this is role specific though. In addition we apply for references to validate recent career history.
