Employment

Education

References

All offers of employment are subject to receipt of satisfactory references.

If you have previously worked in domiciliary, nursing, or residential care before, you must include that employer in your list of Referees.

If you are able to provide more than two references, we may be able to process your application more quickly.

  • Referee 1: - Your present or most recent employer
  • Referee 2: - Ideally from a previous employer. If this is not possible, then from professional member of the community (e.g. former colleague, tutor or teacher, GP, Solicitor or Accountant) who can comment on your ability and suitability to undertake the role of domiciliary carer. The reference cannot be a ‘friend’ or family relative. If you have worked in care before, but that care employer is not listed as Referee 1, you must list your most recent care employer as Referee 2.
  • Referee 3/4: - A character reference that can be from another person described in Referee 2, or alternatively a long-term family friend who is able to comment on your ability and suitability to undertake the role of domiciliary carer. For these two please provide details of their relationship to you.

Note: Referres 3 and 4 will only be contacted if we cannot secure a reference from Referees 1 and 2.

Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS – formerly CRB) Check

In the absence of an existing and current enhanced disclosure, your employment with Ashwell Home Care Services would be subject to satisfactory clearance following a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) search in respect of criminal convictions.

All potential new employees must agree to the submission of a DBS application. The fee is paid by us on your behalf, although it is an express condition of your employment that we have the right to recover the fee directly from your final remuneration, if your employment is terminated (for any reason and whether by you or us), either during, or following the conclusion of, your probation period. An unfavourable response to a DBS application may result in the withdrawal of any offer of employment, or termination of employment if already commenced.

If at any point during your ongoing employment with us, you become the subject of a criminal investigation; or you are cautioned or convicted of an offence, you are obliged to inform us of the details of the investigation, caution or conviction immediately. Furthermore, repeat disclosure searches in relation to all employees may be undertaken from time to time (usually annually).

Ashwell Home Care Services is committed to the health and safety of all employees and every effort will be taken to minimise potential health risks to yourself and other workers. The information provided in the section below will remain confidential. Failure to disclose or the giving of false information could put yourself and others at risk.

Please answer the following questions in the spaces provided. The information is purely for monitoring purposes, to assist applicants for arrangements for interview and to assess ability to do the duties intrinsic to the role. We do not discriminate against disabled applicants for any other purpose.
