The sixth section of the online application form asks you to provide details of any convictions, cautions, reprimands or final warnings that are not "protected" as defined by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (exceptions) Order 1975 (as amended in 2013) by SI 2013 1198.
More information can be found in the Rehabilitation of Offenders document.
We advise that you read the above document carefully before submitting your application.
We will not unfairly discriminate against ex-offenders, and if you have to give details of previous convictions this will not automatically prevent you from getting the job. We will consider how previous convictions could affect the job you are applying for and these will only be taken into account if the offence is relevant to the type of work you would be doing.
If you are invited to interview you may be asked questions in respect of relevant criminal convictions and other associated information in order to assess job-related risks.
As Lincoln College meets the requirements in respect of exempted occupations under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, all applicants who are offered employment will be subject to a Disclosure and Barring Check from the Disclosure and Barring Service before the appointment is confirmed.
You are therefore required to disclose if you have any convictions, cautions, reprimands or final warnings that are not "protected" as defined by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (exceptions) Order 1975 (as amended in 2013) by SI 2013 1198. Any information disclosed will be kept confidential and used only in connection with the application.
This document contains full details of the filtering rules and a list of offences which will never be filtered, which has been derived from legislation.
We may withdraw an offer of employment if you do not give details of previous convictions, cautions, reprimands or final warnings where appropriate.
You must give us permission to carry out a police check (Disclosure) before you commence your employment with the College and where individuals are registered with the online Update Service with the DBS, give us permission to check your status on line upon offer of employment with the College.
The successful candidate will be unable to take up the appointment until disclosure information has been received by the College.
Lincoln College is a registered body with the Disclosure and Barring Service and as such is bound by the DBS’s code of practice. A copy of this is available on request from the HR Unit.
