Rehabilition of Offenders Act

If the position you are applying for is exempt from the provisions of section 4 (2) of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 by virtue of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions) Order 1975 (as amended), because of the nature of the work, you are not entitled withhold any information of any unspent convictions, cautions, reprimands or warnings and if you do it could result in withdrawal of any job offer made, dismissal or disciplinary action. Where applicable, applicants are therefore required to give all relevant information about convictions, which for other purposes are “spent” under the provisions of the Act.

Any information given will be completely confidential and will only be considered in relation to an application for positions to which the order applies. Having a criminal record will not necessarily bar an applicant from working with the Hospice.
