Right to Work and DBS Checks

At Ascenti, we conduct identity, Right to Work and DBS checks on everyone who joins us.

Right to Work checks are a Government requirement to verify that individuals who apply for a job with us are eligible to work in the UK.

The DBS background checks are in place at Ascenti due to the sensitive data and information we deal with through our patient care, and all staff must go through this process before joining us. 

These checks require personal documents from you to support and verify the above checking procedures.

Before your interview you must provide three original documents to the Talent Team via email and keep the same documents on hand to show at your virtual interview. All documents must be in their original format e.g. – paper. Therefore, you must scan them or take a picture of them like below and attached them to the email.
The Government have allowed a temporary change to Right to Work checks during the Covid-19 pandemic where they can be conducted via video calls. This includes holding up your document to the camera like below, so that the interviewee can take a screengrab of the documents as proof that they have checked them with the person they are interviewing for the role.
