PGL is committed to the principles of equality and diversity and welcome applicants from all sectors of the community. However, all PGL colleagues are required to undergo enhanced background checks (known as a DBS), which PGL will pay for. The DBS looks at criminal records, so if you have a conviction related to violence, drugs or safeguarding this could affect your application. You can find more information on DSB checks on the gov.uk website.
