Criminal Records Bureau Check "CRB"
Every worker seeking employment within the care sector will be subject to a UK police check, known as a CRB check. These checks can take 4-6 weeks to come through, and you will not be able to work without one. The CRB check costs £36, which is payable by the worker and is reimbursed by us once you have worked 40 hours with Temp Network. For more information, please visit www.crb.gov.uk
Looking for Accommodation:
If you are arriving from overseas with no accommodation arranged, you will find plenty of letting agencies in the main towns who will be able to find you a flat or apartment to rent. Alternatively, if you are looking for a bedroom only in a shared house, you will frequently find these advertised in the local free press. Many letting agents will ask you to provide references and also run a credit check on you; if you are unsuccessful in this, you will be asked to pay your rent up front possibly 6 months' rent. Rent can vary from £50 per week (for room in shared house) to circa £200 per week for a two bedroom apartment or small house. Additionally, you will ideally need the use of a car or motor cycle whilst working in Kent, especially if you are working on a temporary or ad hoc basis. For help with property: www.gumtree.com
We will ask you to provide names and contact details of a minimum of 2 referees covering the last 3 years of your employment. References must be received in English
