Rehabilitation of Offenders
Because of the nature of the work for which you are applying, this post is exempt from provisions of Section 4 (2) of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 by virtue of Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) order 1975.
Applicants are, therefore, not entitled to withhold information about convictions which for the purpose are "Spent" under the provisions of the Act.
Failure to disclose such convictions, following discussion, could result in withdrawal of employment offer, or in the event of employment disciplinary action which may result in dismissal, in either event this will be reported to the local Health Authority/CSCI
All information given is strictly confidential and will be considered only to applications to which the Order applies.
If your application is successful an enhanced disclosure will be sought from the Criminal Records Bureau and the Protection of Vulnerable Adults (POVA) register will also be consulted.
We will comply fully with the DBS code of practice* and not discriminate unfairly against any subject of a DBS disclosure on the basis of conviction or other information revealed. Having a criminal record will not necessarily bar an applicant from working for the company, as the nature of the disclosed conviction and its relevance to the post in question will be considered first.
