As stated on the application form, because of the sensitive nature of the duties the postholder will be expected to undertake, you are required to disclose details of certain criminal records. Only relevant convictions and other information will be taken into account so disclosure need not necessarily be a bar to obtaining this position.
If you have declared a criminal record and we believe this to have a bearing on the requirements of the post, we will discuss this matter with you. If we do not raise the record with you it is because we have taken the view that it should not be taken into account in deciding your suitability for the post. If you require further information or have any concerns about filling in this declaration, please contact our Central Support switchboard on 0114 221 3222 and they will put you in touch with a representative of the Human Resources Department.
Please note that the post you have applied for is excepted from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, which means that certain convictions, cautions, reprimands and final warnings on your criminal record need to be disclosed. Applicants are therefore not entitled to withhold information about certain convictions which for other purposes are 'spent' under the provisions of the Act, and in the event of employment, any failure to disclose such convictions, cautions, reprimands and final warnings could result in dismissal or disciplinary action by the Company.
If yes, please give details of offences, penalties and dates:
I declare I have read and understood this form. I declare that the information I have given is true and complete to the best of my knowledge and belief.
