Online and Social Media & DBS checking services
We're here to support you with the two key safeguarding checks that must be carried out as part of any recruitment and selection process: an Online and Social Media & a DBS check.
It is vital that education providers follow safer recruitment practices as set out in the DfE's Keeping Children Safe in Education guidance, from time to time in force. We're here to help.
Giving you confidence and in adherence with statutory guidance.
Why choose our Online and Social Media & DBS checking services?
Online and Social Media
Our Online and Social Medial checks focus on 7 established index measures of any individual’s online presence:
- News Reports
- Personal Listing
- Blogs and Vlogs
- General Searches
- Professional Network
- Social Media
The index measures act as a powerful screening and online behaviour evaluation tool that objectively, lawfully, and fairly assesses a shortlisted candidate's social media profile over a 2-year period.
Reports only contain information relevant to the core concerns which the DfE's Keeping Children Safe in Education guidance has attempted to address, meaning there is no digging or scrapping for information that goes beyond a reasonable level.
These checks result in a simple risk report. This enables you to discuss any flagged concerns with the candidate before making an informed decision on whether to proceed with the appointment.
Each check will cost £30, plus an administration cost of £14 per check for any client of Judicium Education’s HR services, or £18 per check for clients of any other Judicium services.
As a gesture of goodwill, if you later utilise our DBS checking service in respect of the successful candidate(s), we will reduce our administration cost for the DBS check.
Safeguarding legislation outlines that an Enhanced DBS check should be requested for all school employees and volunteers and that, where those individuals will be engaging in regulated activity with children or vulnerable adults, an Enhanced DBS check with children/adult barred list information is required.
We offer an online DBS checking service which is designed to ensure the information provided to the Disclosure and Barring Service is accurate and in line with requirements. This is aimed at avoiding any unnecessary delays and preventing any checks from being unnecessarily rejected and needing to be resubmitted.
Each check will cost £38 (volunteers are free of charge) plus an administration cost of £14 per check for any client of Judicium Education's HR services, or £18 per check for clients of any other Judicium service.
For customers who have also used our Online and Social Media checking service, they will benefit from a reduced loyalty price of just £11 per check if they are a client of Judicium Education's HR services or £15 for clients of any other Judicium service. All administration fees will be subject to VAT.
Judicium helped us to resolve a potentially difficult personnel issue. Help and support has always been available at the end of a telephone line or via email. In future I will consult Judicium about any employment law or HR related issues. I recommend their service highly."
