Background Checks

The safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults is central to the work that we do. Background checks will assist Tearfund to have confidence that our representatives can be trusted to have contact with children and vulnerable adults and handle their sensitive information appropriately. This is one of many steps undertaken by the organisation to support the safety of children and vulnerable adults. Candidates should note that any offer of work (including employment, volunteer and contract work) will be subject to the satisfactory completion of;

  1. A self-declaration process
  2. A criminal records/police check
  3. Two reference verifications

At all times, Tearfund staff are expected to carry out their duties with the utmost respect and in accordance with Tearfund’s Safeguarding & Whistleblowing Policy.
