This post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. Consequently if you are appointed you will be required to undertake an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service check. Therefore you will be required to declare ANY convictions, cautions and bind-overs you may have, regardless of how long ago they occurred, including those regarded as 'spent'. Having a criminal record will not necessarily prevent you from taking up appointment, it will depend on the nature of the offences and their relevance to the post you are applying for. However, should you NOT declare an offence that is subsequently revealed, e.g. though the DBS check, then this may place your appointment in jeopardy.
