You may need basic, standard, or enhanced DBS - depending on the level of assurance your employer needs. To see if you are suitable for a certain job. This might include jobs like accountants, legal assistants, those working with children or vulnerable adults.
An Enhanced Disclosure check details all criminal history: cautions, warnings, reprimands, spent and unspent convictions held on the Police National Computer (PNC), with the exception of the DBS filtering rule. It also checks against the DBS Children and Adult barred list (where appropriate) and information provided by local police forces. This type of disclosure can only be applied for by an organisation/employer.
