      Have you received 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 1198)?

      To your knowledge, are you currently the subject of any criminal proceedings (for example, charged or summoned but not yet dealt with) or any police investigation?

      If you answered ‘yes’ to either of the two previous questions, please provide details:

      Do you consent to our applying for an enhanced criminal records disclosure on you and our retaining a copy of your disclosure certificate during the period of your employment until a new disclosure is completed?

      Note that: if once a criminal records disclosure has been completed and it is discovered that you have failed to accurately disclose information requested above, the company reserves the right to terminate your employment without notice. Please be aware about our policy on the recruitment of ex-offenders, if you have any questions regarding this, please contact the office where a member of The Leading Care Company will be happy to help you.

      Criminal records disclosures – The Leading Care Company Policy
      As an organisation assessing applicants’ suitability for positions which are included in the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order using criminal record checks processed through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), The Leading Care Company complies fully with the Code of Practice and undertake to treat all applicants for positions fairly. We will not discriminate unfairly against any subject of a criminal record check based on a conviction or other information revealed.

      The Leading Care Company can only ask an individual to provide details of convictions and cautions that we are legally entitled to know about. Where a DBS certificate at either standard or enhanced level can legally be requested (where the position is one that is included in the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exception) Order 1975 as amended) and where appropriate police Act Regulations (as amended), The Leading Care Company can only ask an individual about convictions and cautions that are not protected.

      Do you have any health conditions that would prevent you from meeting these intrinsic requirements for which The Leading Care Company might need to make reasonable adjustments? (If yes, please be aware that we may need to discuss these during your interview).

      If you have answered ‘yes’ to the above, please give brief details
