    Just on filling some forms out for a council contract and Iv started worrying a little over the CRB check.
    14 year ago I was a bit of a *** at 20 year old n got pulled by police I wasn't insured n gave diff name to wich thy caught me out on n I got done.now on paper it was down as something along lines of resisting arrest or something along thm lines im just worried it might come back to haunt me nearly 15 year later

  2. Hey mate I'd be happy to help. Just left the force this year so still clued up on things. Did you ever get charged with anything? And if so did you go to court and get convicted? Pm if you'd prefer to keep it private. CRB checks are done at different levels. Most are just very basic stuff with minimal details given.

    as a self employed you cant get a full crb, for a self employed its a scottish disclosure, that will only show things that you get convicted on!
     
  4. Being employed or self employed has nothing to do with it. It's what you do or have contact with or near that counts. The government decides on a list that certain jobs require to have one.

    This process is done differently in Scotland if this is what your referring too?

    being a self empolyed person cant get a full crb done on themselfs. it has to be done through something called a scottish disclosure.
    i know cos i had to go throught this to get my own, and being self employed you cant get a fully crb

    Current legislation does not allow the self-employed or individuals to apply for a CRB check, as they cannot ask an exempted question of themselves. It is for the recruiting organisation asking the exempted question to assess an applicant's suitability.
    However the following options are available:
    • a self-employed person can apply for a CRB check by registering with an agency
    • individuals are able to obtain a basic check from our colleagues at Disclosure Scotland. This provides individuals with details of any 'unspent' convictions
    • alternatively, individuals are able to make a 'subject access' request to their local police force under the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998, which will provide up-to-date details of any criminal records in the UK.

    think if you go from self empolyed and turn into a Ltd company you could do, but not sure
     
  10. This is if your applying for a CRB check for yourself which as stated above is the correct way.

    As I read it he is applying through the council.
