Equality Information

Please tell us whether you consider yourself to have a disability. We want to encourage disabled people to apply for jobs and do everything we can to make it a positive experience. If you will need any adjustments to be made at your interview please give us details so we can make the necessary arrangements.

Criminal Convictions

Some jobs are subject to a satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service Check (DBS).  This will be mentioned on the person specification. We can only ask for DBS clearance for the person who we are offering a job to. If this is the case we can only make a conditional offer subject to satisfactory DBS clearance. This may also delay your start date if clearance takes some time.

Previous criminal convictions are not an automatic bar to employment because it will depend on the nature of the job and the circumstances and background of any offences.

If you are unsure how this affects you and what information you will need to include on your application when a DBS check is required please contact NACRO on 0207 840 64 64.

Essential Requirements
