Take the next step in your career with DBS


Do you want to make a contribution to safeguarding vulnerable groups? Can you manage a caseload with the independence to prioritise your workload? Do you have the ability to make effective decisions?

Whether you’re just starting out in your career, on the lookout for an exciting new opportunity or ready to make the switch to a fresh profession, this opening could be the perfect chance for you.

The Disclosure and Barring Service helps employers to make safer recruitment decisions each year by processing and issuing DBS checks for England, Wales, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. Here you can truly make a difference, making decisions based on a range of sources and information to come to the right conclusion, whether that means approval for the candidate or barring them from moving forward.

As a HEO Caseworker for the Disclosure & Barring Service you will undertake the handling of casework and associated tasks, exercising judgement and interpretative ability using defined business rules, regulations and/or legislation and relevant good practice and precedent. Following a period of training, with mentoring support provided by experienced caseworkers, you will consider a wide range of factors, evaluate and consider the facts of a case and exercise sound judgement to make appropriate, rational and often difficult decisions.

You’ll need to stay on top of your workload, be able to liaise with a wide range of people on a daily basis to ensure that all voices are heard, whilst providing information to senior management in order to improve the quality of service for the DBS.

The role is based in Darlington, however DBS are committed to providing flexibility to their staff which would allow the successful candidate to work remotely for a proportion of their contractual hours. The expectation is that the successful candidate would visit the office at least once a month as a minimum, offering you flexibility for your work-life balance but also ensuring that you form connections in the office that could help you in the future as your progress. As such, applications from candidates who reside in a non-typical geographical commuting distance to Darlington are very much welcome to apply.
