The DBS have released further information on home based positions together with a flow chart aimed at making it clearer to applicants and employers, what roles would fall under this category. For more information on why this is an important definition please read the Home Based Position FAQ.
This updated definition will take effect from the 27th April 2015. To review the guidance please follow the below links to DBS website. The guidance includes some sample scenarios to assist with the assessment process:
