I signed up to work for a supply agency in January 18 and worked full time for them until the Summer holidays. I was told that they would renew my dbs in the April. I rang them at Easter to make sure they were doing this and was told they were and not to worry. However, at the back of my mind I did worry as I was sure I hadn't seen the direct debit for the update, tracking service of £13 come out of my account. Stupidly, I took their word and thought no more about it. Until I registered with another agency two weeks ago to find my dbs not in date. Turns out they never renewed it in April. They have since sent me a link (free of charge) and I've applied for another. However, I haven't yet had it back and so won't be able to start work yet. Has anyone had this happen to them? I believe I must have been working since April without a live dbs.
