In just a few weeks, our way of life in the UK has been turned upside-down. Coronavirus or Covid-19 has sparked the biggest health emergency in a century. We’re all doing the right things by staying at home, and limiting contact with others.
Every month, thousands of companies across the UK submit DBS checks. Some are for employees working in jobs where a DBS check is a legal requirement, like teaching or nursing. Other companies have a blanket policy of checking.
If 2020 is all about getting a new job for you, then one of the main areas to look at is the retail sector. Although the British High Street has been struggling recently, retail is still a great option for people wanting part-time, flexible work.

Welsh is thriving, with around 20% of the nation’s population being able to comfortably hold a conversation in the language. Anyone who’s been to Wales recently will be familiar with dual English and Welsh language signs too.

If you’ve got a criminal record, you’re not alone. Hundreds of thousands of people across the UK have some sort of minor brush with the law in their past. Many might have a more serious criminal conviction.
Do you have an unusual name which people often remark on? Gone are the days when every baby born was called William, John, Mary or Elizabeth. 21st parents are much more adventurous when it comes to naming their offspring.
