Should we make you an offer of employment, we will be carrying out pre-employment screening.
These checks will relate to professional and academic qualifications, references from previous employers, social media checks, your eligibility to work in the UK, disciplinary search with the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). We will also carry out a DBS search (Disclosure and Barring Service) which checks for any previous criminal convictions. Some roles at Ashtons Legal require a financial background check to be carried out.
Please be assured that we will not be carrying out any checks prior to your formal acceptance of our offer and your confirmation of resignation.
The employment screening process will fully comply with Data Protection and other applicable laws.
