Safer Recruitment

Whether you are employing staff or recruiting volunteers, you need to be confident that those who are working with adults at risk or children are suitable.  Safeguarding is a big topic and involves more than just doing a DBS so in this article we examine some of the steps you can take to protect those most vulnerable.

Plan ahead

Writing a good job or role description is crucial to enable you to match applicants well against set criteria.  All tasks should be clearly written so that it comes as no surprise to an individual when they take up a position.
