Why is safeguarding important?
Ensuring a safeguarding culture in any sector is essential for safety and welfare, especially so for those working with vulnerable groups.
That’s why Personnel Checks is supporting Army of Nannies. They are actively encouraging their applicants to undergo a robust background screening process before they enter into employment.
This means nannies have affordable access to the appropriate background checks. And families can check and have peace of mind that the right standards are in place.
Which DBS check is required?
When a nanny signs up to Army of Nannies (AoN) they will be asked whether they have current Enhanced DBS Check in place. If nannies do not have one, they are invited to make an Enhanced DBS Check application with Personnel Checks.
An Enhanced DBS Check will search an individual’s criminal record for cautions, warnings, reprimands and convictions (both spent and unspent).
Due to the nature of the role, this check will also include a search of the DBS’s Children’s Barred List. The police force then shares any relevant information they may hold on the applicant.

How to apply for an Enhanced DBS Check…
AoN applicants that require an Enhanced DBS Check are directed to a specific page on the Personnel Checks website.
Our Applicant Engagement team will guide you quickly and easily through every step of the application process.
Applying through Army of Nannies entitles you to a discounted rate of £53 for the Enhanced DBS Check.
