Having a criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working for us as we do not discriminate against ex-offenders. We will only take account of previous convictions if the nature of the offence is relevant to the type of work you would be doing. In your application tell us about any ‘unspent’ convictions you may have as defined in the rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. All Thomas Rotherham College employees who are involved in the recruitment process have been suitably trained to identify and assess relevance and circumstances of offences.
However, if a risk assessment of the post has indicated that the post is exempt from the act, you will need to tell us about all ‘spent’ and ‘unspent’ convictions and cautions as part of your application. If successful at the selection stage, we will conditionally offer you the post while we contact the DBS to assess your suitability for the position.
