As a general rule, no-one needs to answer questions about spent convictions. However, this rule does not apply to specified professions, employments and occupations. By virtue of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) (Amendment) Orders, the exemption rule does not apply to:
a) Any employment or other work which is concerned with the provision of health services and which is of such a kind as to enable the holder of that employment or the person engaged in that work to have access to persons in receipt of such services in the course of their normal duties, or
b) Any employment or other work which is concerned with the provision of care services to vulnerable adults and which is of such a kind as to enable the holder of that employment or the person engaged in that work to have access to vulnerable adults in receipt of such services in the course of his normal duties
One or both of the above apply to work with 18 Week Support, and covers all occupations.
You are therefore requested to provide details of all convictions, including those which would otherwise be considered as “spent”. All employment applications will be considered carefully, and the disclosure of a conviction does not imply that this employment application will be rejected.
Please detail any convictions on a separate piece of paper with your name clearly visible, place it in a sealed envelope marked 'Private and Confidential' and send to: Recruitment Team, 18 Week Support Ltd, Third Floor, 19-21 Great Tower Street, London, EC3R 5AR
