Rehabilitation of Offenders Act
We will treat applicants who have a criminal record fairly and will not discriminate because of a conviction or other information revealed. Possession of a criminal record will not automatically prevent you from working with us. As part of the recruitment process any information revealed regarding a criminal record will only be considered in light of its relevance to the post that you are applying for.
For most jobs you do not need to provide information about spent convictions under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the Exceptions Order 1975. Some types of job, including this job are exempt from this act meaning that you will have to declare any criminal convictions, both spent and unspent. As you are applying for a post which is eligible for an enhanced DBS disclosure, you are required to declare information on any convictions, cautions, reprimands or final warnings, which would not be filtered in line with current guidance.
