    Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults
    To your knowledge, have you ever had any allegations made against you relating to the safeguarding of children or adults at risk which has been reported to and investigated by Social Services and/or the Police?

    If YES, we will need to discuss this with you.

     

    Criminal Convictions
    Do you have any convictions, cautions, reprimands or final warnings that are unspent or not "protected" as defined by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (as amended in 2013)?*

    Are you currently under investigation, awaiting trial, verdict or sentencing in any criminal proceeding?

    If YES to either question, please give details.

    Depending on the role you may be required to apply for a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Enhanced Disclosure before any offer of employment can be confirmed.

    *The post you are applying for is ‘exempt’ from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and therefore, you are required to declare any convictions, cautions, reprimands and final warnings that are not ‘protected’ (i.e. filtered out) as defined by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (as amended in 2013). The amendments to the Exceptions Order provide that certain ‘spent’ convictions and cautions are 'protected' and are not subject to disclosure to employers, and cannot be taken into account. Guidance and criteria on the filtering of these cautions and convictions can be found on the Disclosure and Barring Service website. The DBS Code of Practice and our own procedures are available on request for you to read. It is stressed that a criminal record will not necessarily be a bar to appointment, only if the nature of any matters revealed could be considered to place children or vulnerable adults at risk.

     

    Motoring information
    Do you hold a current full driving licence?

    Do you own or have access to a car?

    If you are required to use your vehicle for business purposes it will be necessary for you to have appropriate insurance cover that includes travel in the course of your work. You will be required to fund this at your own expense and we will ask for a copy of your insurance certificate as evidence.
