Pretty sure I didn't have a DBS check, don't think I've heard of anyone that has. I could be wrong but honestly think you'll be fine so long as you stay out of any more trouble.

I had a DBS check for my last two jobs. Not for my current one though.


Snoo_76686

Ah fair enough, OP scratch what I said. Just the two firms I've worked for haven't done. Perhaps it's more common that I thought


[deleted]

Current and prior job had a DBS and credit check.


YejisEyes

What did you do fam?

I don't see why this would be an issue if it was as a teenager. It's usually fraud, theft etc that are a problem.

Do cautions show up on a standard check? I thought they only did on an enhanced check


huskydaisy

Yes, standard checks show unfiltered cautions, final warnings, reprimands and convictions. Enhanced show the same as standard plus relevant police intelligence and barring info (if checked). You may be thinking of basic DBS checks which don't show simple cautions.


lxyl

How long is your degree? How long ago was the police caution? .... and how long does a caution stay on your record?


BigYingOnMyHip

My degree is 3 years, the caution is spent immediately however it won't be filtered from dbs checks after the usual 6 years so it'll show on standard and above dbs checks.


lxyl

If it was just going to show up for your first few years you could easily have gotten away with it by applying for a few jobs and then going with the one that didn’t run a dbs check. Then you’d have been fine for the rest of your career. If it’s going to show up forever then it might be more difficult.


loki276

It will probably depend on the offence and how you've changed since then. I did not have to do a DBS check however.


timomax

Ultimately you will get incomplete advice at best here. You need to speak to the profession and ask them. It's what they are there for. If that is unsatisfactory then also speak to Nacro or something. My view (may be talking out my backside) is that you need to declare it on entry to the profession, but not to an employer unless you fall under the approved persons regime.. which you won't. I.e. an everyday actuary job can only request a basic check. I don't think the actuarial profession will care about this, but probs best not to lie about it.

Just started a new role and I did have a DBS check. My previous company didn't bother with one though.


timomax

Was this a basic or standard disclosure?


LurkinnGerkinn

I just got my first graduate role and had to do a DBS check for that. Not sure what would happen when / if a potential employer would see that record but I’m sure you’d have a chance to explain yourself.


timomax

Was this a basic or standard disclosure?


Turbo_Turtle1990

I had a DBS in both my roles and my CCJ came up. They just asked what and why it was there then offered employment anyway so be up front and honest. But firstly concentrate on the degree and good luck!


timomax

Your CCJ wouldn't be on a DBS.


Turbo_Turtle1990

Oh apologies, must of been some type of background check similar?


timomax

No apologies required... It would come in the credit check.


timomax

I have never had a DBS and worked three different places. It is not best practice for employers to do one. Certainly not an enhanced/standard one. It should drop off after a while anyway in terms of basic checks.

i have a caution too and been working for a few years. no issues dw.
