  • Disclosure and Barring Service Checks

    Before your employment commences Zeno Ltd will conduct a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check on your behalf, at our expense.

    You will be required to provide three documents from this list to support the application.

    Bank or other statements should not be printed from the internet.

    All documents provided need to be current. Ensure, where applicable, they haven’t expired.
    If you have a current DBS registered under the Update Service this can be used as long as the original certificate can be produced and there has been no change to the content.

    Although a criminal conviction is not necessarily a bar to obtaining a position, all applicants must declare any cautions or convictions, even if they are considered to be “spent.” Where necessary, declarations will need to be cleared by the Registered Manager before the application is allowed to continue, depending on the nature of the declaration made.

    It is important to note that employees are not permitted to work for Zeno until the Protection of Vulnerable Adults (PoVA) check has been completed. The DBS application is submitted online and the PoVA check is normally completed within two working days. If the check returns a result of ‘Await Full Certificate’, then the applicant will not be permitted to work with Zeno until the full certificate has been received and viewed by HR/recruitment.

    Once all the checks are completed by the DBS, you will receive your personal copy of the document. Once received, you must provide the document to HR. HR will inspect the document and return it to you once they’ve done so. A separate copy is not received by Zeno so it is important this document is supplied to us once received.
