How long does the Registration Process take?
This is largely in your hands. If you can provide all of the required documentation immediately then you should be able to start work as soon as your DBS comes back! In the meantime we would complete the remainder of our necessary checks such as references, health checks etc and provide the mandatory training. Please check the 'candidates' page to view the list of information you must bring in order to register with us.
I already have a DBS with another company, do i still need to have a disclosure done with Medbank?
