Paper applications are a longer process for you as employers, your applicant, us and the DBS to process. The application form having to be completed correctly with no missing information and then posted to us. Many paper application forms we have received previously have some missing or incorrect information. We need to quality check, countersign, and then post to the government agency for them to start their process. No electronic result is issued, and you must wait for your candidate to show the certificate to your organisation ready for employment to start.

Our simple online application form will speed up your process of applying. No missing information as you cannot progress through the form, the application can be quality checked in real time so no waiting for postal services if something needs amending. The application being accepted by the DBS system and in their processes straight away. An electronic result being issued to you as an employer prior to the applicant receiving a certificate in the post.
