Right to work and DBS IDs
As a responsible employer, YHA carries out a series of pre-employment checks to make informed decisions about the suitability of candidates.
We require all candidates to submit ID for both proof of right to work in the UK and ID for a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check for our safer recruitment practices. We ask you to present this if you are selected to come to an interview or if you are invited along to one of our recruitment events.
If you do not provide this proof of ID at the interview or at the recruitment event, then we may not be able to progress your application.
You cannot start working for YHA until we have a verified copy of your Right to Work ID. We also need to have received your DBS e-result or certificate before you start working for us.
Right to work
As an employer we have a legal responsibility to ensure that all employees have the right to work in the UK.
The ID that we can accept for this check is:
- UK passport (we can accept expired passports if they still resemble the photo)
- UK birth certificate (short or full) along with either a National Insurance card/P60/P45/letter from HMRC evidencing NI number
- EU passport or ID card (we can accept expired passports if they still resemble the photo)
- Non-EU passport (it needs to be in date, and we’ll need to your visa too)
