Dear Disclosure and Barring Service,

I would like to make a similar request to FOI reference 1611. I would like to obtain a list of all potential employer names and the seperate volumes of Basic and Enhanced paper/online applications submitted in the financial year December 2019 to December 2020. To accommodate for s.40 (personal data exemption), please discount employer names that have less than 5 instances/uses in the period (or whatever cut-off that makes it possible under FOI).

For the same period, I would like to obtain a list of all “positions applied for” (question 61 on the DBS application), identifying whether it was a standard or enhanced check (question 63) and listing the “organisation name” associated with the check (question 62). If you decide that the organisation name cannot be revealed, please complete the request without this.

Yours faithfully,

Bob Robert
