It's great dealing with you as you know our business and people so well, it's a relief making one call to you and you'll know exactly what we are looking for. It's such a painless process! You have always made yourself available and its reassuring to know that if we have recruitment need, we know straight away we can call you and will have excellent quality candidates that we can sit down in front of our Partners/Managers without a worry. Beyond all of that, it's a pleasure to deal with you both in email and over the phone. I feel we have an excellent working relationship.
PVG Holders Currently Required
22 March 2020
The Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) membership scheme is managed by Disclosure Scotland. Its purpose is to ensure 'regulated work' for vulnerable groups is only carried out by suitable people.
The scheme works by people applying to join the PVG Scheme. Disclosure Scotland carries out criminal record checks and shares the results with individuals and organisations who are providing the regulated work.
If the information shows the applicant might be unsuitable for regulated work, they'll be referred for further investigation as part of the 'consideration process'.
A PVG scheme member's paper certificate shows the information available on the day it was created. Membership of the scheme lasts forever and scheme members are continuously checked unless they decide to leave the scheme.
Whilst a PVG can be required for a variety of different roles, the most common that Stafffinders require are:
- PVG Drivers
- PVG Cleaners
- PVG Porters
Stafffinders have a number of PVG Jobs which we are currently recruiting for.
