Criminal Record Checks – Most employers ask all job applicants to apply for a basic check during the recruitment process. There are different levels of AccessNI checks, Basic, Standard and Enhanced.

The Belfast Unemployed Resource Centre acts as an umbrella body for AccessNI and we advise and guide employers and employees of the processes, what information they disclose and how to apply and complete.

If you’re self-employed, a volunteer or working with children and vulnerable adults the BURC can assist in applying for the Standard and Enhanced checks.

Anyone wanting any further information on AccessNI Disclosures ring the office on 02890 961111 or email
