Ex Offenders Recruitment Policy
A Disclosure is only requested if it is both proportionate and relevant to the position concerned. For those positions where a Disclosure is required, job adverts and job profiles will contain a statement that a Disclosure will be requested in the event of the individual being offered the position.
Where a Disclosure is to form part of the recruitment process, we encourage all applicants called for interview to provide details of their criminal record at an early stage in the application process. We request that this information is sent under separate, confidential cover, to a designated person within the Company and we guarantee that this information will only be seen by those who need to see it as part of the recruitment process.
Unless the nature of the position allows the Company to ask questions about your entire criminal record, we only ask about ‘unspent’ convictions as defined in the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.Read the full policy »
