Because Social Care workers deal with vulnerable or physically frail people, all applicants must undergo pre-employment checks, including:
- Conduct a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check
- Protection of Children Act (PoCA) when working with children (under 18)
- Protection of Vulnerable Adults (POVA) list when working in registered care homes
Please note: an enhanced DBS should cover all of the above as long as ‘child and adult workforce’ has been specified: we conduct these checks as a matter of course.
It should be our mutual aim to improve public trust in Social Care. Register with Randstad Care and we’ll support you through the necessary checks.
