The Board will carry out, or delegate to the appropriate office holders, recruitment and screening due diligence checks according to good practice standards for all staff and volunteers. All recruitment and screening documentation will be accessed by a suitably experienced member of the organisation with the authority of the Board.
All completed recruitment and screening documentation will be stored securely, and successful applicant documentation will be held on personnel files for a minimum of 45 years. We also have appointment and admission procedures for contractors and guests to our offices or venues where young people may be in attendance. We have four recruitment and screening procedures:
- Procedure for paid staff and Board members
- Procedure for volunteer workers and helpers
- Procedure for contractors
- Procedure for admission of guests (including those hiring our venue, parent visitors, all other adults who visit when young people are on programs)
