This was the first time I have used a recruitment agency and the level of service from Stafffinders has been excellent. The Consultant quickly gained an understanding of my requirements and took the time to understand how we work. Stafffinders got back to me very quickly regarding interviews and were in regular contact with myself. Stafffinders will now be the first company I contact when I have a recruitment need.
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 whcih we are currently recruiting for.
