I live in the North West and I was due to do some work at a school in a particular area through Agency B- only to have the work pulled as I apparently needed a CRB direct from Agency B, not the one that was made portable through Agency A. I know Lancashire County Council are pains about this, but this was another council. I've had more work from Agency A than Agency B, although Agency B do pay a fiver more on average. I'm considering getting a CRB direct from Agency B, although I'd have to pay for it. It might give me more work though - has anyone run into this nonsense? Surely a CRB's good no matter whether it was with Agency A or B?
