As part of my eternal quest to find the right school, I’m registering with a leading recruitment agency. As well as all their other forms, they are asking me to get a new dbs. Personally, I’m dubious. Seems to me that as I’m after a permanent job, it should be my next employer who forks out £40 to do this. In fact, the agency seems far more geared towards supply staff than permanent jobs. I’m tempted to say ‘you find me some interviews, then I’ll think about it.’ Does this seem churlish? Or should I just get a new dbs and make sure it’s on the update service?
