As you may be aware, Cummins Mellor Recruitment have a DBS Checking division ‘Personnel Checks’ which is a top 50 Registered Umbrella Body for the Disclosure and Barring Service. (formerly known as the Criminal Records Bureau)

Personnel Checks has been established since 2004 and has a team of fully trained and experienced advisors helping organisations and individuals across the country to obtain criminal record checks.

Not only do we provide a fast and efficient service, with 57% of applications returned in under 1 week, but we also take safeguarding society extremely seriously.


To tie in with Lancashire Day on Thursday 27th November, Personnel Checks decided to go back to our roots and launch a new twitter campaign to raise awareness on Safeguarding in Lancashire.

The purpose of the Safeguarding Lancashire campaign is to;

  • Provide safeguarding advice and information to schools, social care and education providers across Lancashire
  • Inform these providers of changes in DBS legislation, safeguarding requirements and promoting interesting literature & articles
  • Encourage local businesses to see the importance of criminal record checking in the workplace

We want to support local businesses by ensuring you have all the necessary information needed in order to make sound recruitment decisions.

We aim to keep you abreast of legislative changes, provide industry news and encourage discussions regarding key issues affecting your recruitment policies.

With over 10 years’ expertise in our field, we are happy to provide guidance in an often complex area of the recruitment process.
