Commitment to Safeguarding

EKC Group is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults and we ensure that all staff are aware of their responsibilities for upholding these principles. The Group’s designation as a ‘designated establishment’ means that all posts within EKC Group are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (ROA) 1974. We therefore have an obligation to carry out robust checks to ensure that staff are suitable to work with children and vulnerable adults; applicants are therefore advised that appropriate safeguarding checks (including an enhanced DBS check) will be undertaken on all successful applicants; job offers will be made on the basis of satisfactory DBS and other checks, including the receipt of two references. If you are successful in obtaining an interview, your suitability to work with children and vulnerable adults will be explored as part of the interview process. Applicants should note that it is a criminal offence to apply for a post which involves engaging in regulated activity relevant to children if you are barred from doing so. All applicants are required to complete and submit a self-declaration of their criminal record or information that would make them unsuitable to work with children and vulnerable adults.
