Vulnerable Sector Check

Your prospective employer or organization should tell you if you require a Vulnerable Sector Check as not all positions require one. Examples of positions that may require a Vulnerable Sector Check include teachers, social workers, daycare workers, nurses, and children’s sports coaches, ride hailing drivers (eg: Uber and Lyft), and taxi services.
