Just seen a job advertised where an Enhanced CRB check is a requirement, but the employer is asking potential employees to pay the £44 cost of the check. All of the jobs I have applied for the employers have always paid the checks. Not sure what I think about this, seems wrong somehow. If uniform is a requirement then my understanding is that the employer is responsible for paying, but employees can be asked to pay for CRB. Thoughts?

Who should pay for CRB checks, Employees or Employers?

Youth Work(ing) Hours (Poll)

A conversation on twitter earlier sparked off a thought about youth workers and the time we put into our work. This is aimed at employed Youth Workers, Youth Ministers, Youth Pastors, Youthworkers, Youth Work Students on Placement or Volunteers working as if paid (eg gap year volunteer). If you fit into one of the above categories, or anything similar, then please answer this quick question about the time you put into your youth work.

I know this kind of question has been asked before, so thanks for taking part (I hope you did). I also have a few further questions that I’d be interested to know the answers to, but I’ll save those until I have a few responses to this question.
