As part of our safeguarding measures, we require all candidates to submit their ID for a Basic DBS check (or an Enhanced DBS Check where the role is identified as regulated). You cannot start work with YHA or reside in our staff accommodation until this check has been returned to us. Please note there is no cost to the applicant – YHA pays the full cost of the appropriate DBS check.
Once offered a position at YHA, new starters will receive an email from either their Recruiting Manager or the YHA Shared Services Team, requesting that they complete a DBS Check application online. Logins, links and guidance will be included in the email. Valid ID’s should be provided at interview stage; Recruiting Managers will then provide verified scans to the Shared Services team.
ID route options for your DBS check are outlined in the DBS guidance below.
Online utility bills and mobile phone statements are not accepted. Bank statements printed online can be accepted, so long as they show the full name and address of the applicant and are dated. Alternatively, online bank statements can be stamped in-branch.
If your role is regulated, you will need to present 3 forms of ID as you will be required to undertake an Enhanced check.
