Would a criminal record prevent me from applying?

Not necessarily. If you have a conviction, then a panel will consider the nature of the conviction, its relevance to the role you are applying for, the sentence, any pattern of offending and the length of time since the offence.

You will be informed if a panel is to be convened and will have the opportunity to provide additional information in a supporting statement.

An assessment will then be carried out to identify the risks to us as an organisation, our business, customers, clients and employees. The panel will decide if your application can proceed, and this is usually at an early stage in the recruitment process.
