New Starter: Self Declaration of Criminal Offences Standard or Enhanced DBS Check (Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974)

Appointment to the post you have applied for is subject to satisfactory criminal record and background checks. The nature of this work means that you are exempt from Section 4(2) of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975. You are not, therefore, entitled to withhold information about convictions which for other purposes are “spent” under the provisions of the Act.
The information you supply on this form will be considered and if you declare any previous criminal convictions, these may be discussed with you prior to a final decision being taken on your appointment. Please be aware that the company has a policy on the Recruitment of Ex-Offenders (available on request), and having a criminal record will not automatically prevent you from being employed by us. In making a decision, Your Trust will consider many factors relevant to the appointment.
Your Trust adheres to the DBS Code of Practice, which requires organisations to use the Disclosure information fairly, not to discriminate against candidates on the basis of unrelated criminal offences, to ensure data security, and to comply with recommendations for the retention of records. A copy of the DBS Code of Practice is available on request or can be accessed on the DBS Website.
If you have any queries in relation to the completion of this form please contact a member of the HR Team.
