Need an Enhanced DBS? We’ve partnered with Personnel Checks to help you apply for and secure Enhanced DBS Checks without a markup on the price.
We offer an exclusive discount rate on Enhanced DBS (eDBS) Checks, and all you need to unlock the offer is a profile on the Army of Nannies site.
What you need to do to get your Enhanced DBS
When you complete a Nanny profile on Army of Nannies, you’ll see a link to Personnel Checks in your dashboard:
Step 1: Create your AoN account and complete your profile in full
Step 2: Head to your dashboard’s Match list and click through to Personnel Checks to begin their eDBS process.
Nannies needs to go through an agency to secure their enhanced DBS. Many agencies markup the price to cover their admin costs. We don’t. It’s more important that nannies get their eDBS, and if a lower price means more nannies can – that’s fine by us!
Please tell more nannies about this service and the saving they can make.Matt – Army of Nannies Founder

Why is safeguarding important?
Ensuring a safeguarding culture in any sector is essential for safety and welfare, especially for those working with vulnerable groups.
That’s why Personnel Checks is supporting Army of Nannies. They actively encourage applicants to undergo a robust background screening before entering 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?
An Enhanced DBS Check will search an individual’s criminal record for cautions, warnings, reprimands and convictions (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 on the applicant.
Securing your Enhanced DBS

Don’t Forget The Enhanced DBS Update Service
The Update Service is an online subscription allowing holders of Standard or Enhanced DBS Certificates to keep them up to date online. With permission, employers can view this information and be notified of any changes to a DBS certificate’s status.
Once a DBS Check is processed, applicants can register for the DBS Update Service using their E-Reference number (form ref. for paper applications). Alternatively, you can register using your Enhanced DBS Certificate Number within 30 days of the certificate’s issue.
NB: The £13 for the Update Service is paid directly to the Disclosure & Barring Service. We feel this is an excellent investment.
