They require a DBS check that is in the contract- if you leave within the first year of employment you owe £50 to the company.
It takes a few days to complete but the employment process is awful. You'll go days or even weeks without hearing anything.
Dbs and references however you have to keep chasing them!
Somerset Care must receive a DBS check, which is vital when working around old vulnerable people. It varies on how long someone has to wait for one, personally mine took around a week to come back.
All full enhanced DBS is completed before any staff member starts. Takes around 3/6 weeks.
