The duties of this post involve accessing ViSOR, the recognised national IT system for the management of people who pose a serious risk of harm to the public. It is Home Office owned and maintained and as such, it is the Home Office that sets the level of vetting required. NPPV is the UK wide accepted and mandated level of vetting which provides a means of ensuring that persons other than police officers, having access to ViSOR have been assessed as to their reliability and integrity and thus suitability for clearance. NPPV includes the same “system” checks as Enhanced Disclosure and PVG, as well as others, but also includes family members and financial checks all of which is intended to protect the individual and organisation from the potential for manipulation and the inappropriate disclosure of sensitive information. In order to access and use ViSOR all staff must be vetted to either Non-Police Personnel Vetting Level 2 (NPPV 2) or Non-Police Personnel Vetting Level 3 (NPPV 3), depending on an individual’s role within ViSOR. Therefore the successful applicant must be vetted to Non-Police Personnel Vetting Level .The duties of the post also involve Regulated Work with children and/or protected adults, as specified in the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007. Successful applicants for such posts will be required to become a Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme member in respect of Regulated Work with either or both of these groups as appropriate, or if they are already a Scheme member, be subject to a PVG Scheme Record Update, before any formal offer of employment can be made by East Ayrshire Council.Please note:- PVG members’ records are constantly updated with any new vetting information that arises. Any information that is disclosed on a PVG Scheme Record or Scheme Record Update, if relevant to the post being applied for, will be discussed with the applicant prior to any formal offer of employment being made.
