Vetting of all Staff
Our safeguarding measures include the following checks on our employees and freelancers before deployment:
Staff provide proof of their identity in the form of a passport or driving license.
We take up written references for our staff.
Enhanced DBS Checks and Overseas Certificates of Good Character
Staff who, through the execution of their duties, could feasibly find themselves alone with young or vulnerable people are required to provide an Enhanced DBS check that is less than three years old. Through the online update service, we may undertake DBS checks more frequently. We also ask any staff who have lived abroad for over 6 months in the last 5 years to provide an overseas certificate of good character.
Qualifications and Experience
We check that all staff are sufficiently qualified and experienced to carry out the roles that they are asked to perform. Unless exempt, staff hold a relevant, and in date, first aid certificate as is required to validate most outdoor leading qualifications. We also review the work of staff to identify specific areas of expertise and weakness to ensure that we are deploying the most suitable staff for a specific job.
