Pre-employment checks

All job offers will be made subject to any relevant checks.

These might include:

  • references;
  • Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) or Disclosure Scotland checks as applicable (you should have decided if a criminal record check is needed when you wrote your job description);
  • proof of right to work, for example a UK passport or a valid visa (if your new employee will need a Certificate of Sponsorship and/or a visa then the offer will be subject to them getting this);
  • proof of qualifications or professional membership (if these are needed for the job);
  • proof of teaching qualifications (if the job involves teaching). 

As soon as you have any of these, you should send them to HR.
