Our Comprehensive Screening Process Ensures Safe Household Staff Placement

When it comes to placing household staff candidates, we prioritise safety and thoroughness above all else. To achieve this, each and every candidate we recommend undergoes a meticulous screening process that includes DBS checks and other essential verifications. This disclosure is at the heart of our commitment to providing safe and reliable household staff.

DBS Checks and Certification

Before any candidate joins a household, we conduct Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks and certification. This step ensures that individuals have a clean record with no history of criminal activity that could pose a risk to the household or its members. It's a vital aspect of our screening policy, allowing us to maintain the highest standards of safety and security.

Residency Criteria for CRB Checks

Candidates who have been UK residents for more than six months are subject to Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) checks. This additional layer of screening helps us gain insight into a candidate's background and potential risks. We leave no stone unturned when it comes to safeguarding our clients' interests.

Candidates with Shorter UK Residency

For candidates who haven't been UK residents for the required six months, we take extra measures to ensure their suitability. In such cases, we conduct police checks in their home country, whenever feasible. This international screening is part of our commitment to thoroughness, even for candidates with a shorter UK residency.

DBS Disclosure Timeframe

It's important to note that the DBS disclosure process can take up to 16 weeks to complete. However, in certain circumstances, candidates may commence work before this period concludes. This is done under the understanding that they will provide the necessary information as soon as it becomes available. We prioritise timely and transparent communication throughout this process.

More Information on DBS Checks

For those interested in learning more about DBS checks and their importance, we recommend visiting the official DBS website at This resource provides detailed information about the background checks we conduct as part of our screening process.

Verbal References and Past Employer Interviews

In addition to the rigorous background checks, we make it compulsory to gather verbal references and speak with past employers before arranging interviews for our candidates. This step helps us gain insights into a candidate's work ethic, skills, and character, ensuring that we recommend only the most qualified and trustworthy individuals to our clients.

In conclusion, our commitment to safety and thoroughness in the placement of household staff is unwavering. We understand the importance of trust and reliability in this industry, and our screening process reflects this commitment. When you choose our services, you can rest assured that every candidate has undergone rigorous background checks and verification procedures to ensure your peace of mind and the safety of your household.
