Checking Criminal Record

We actively promote equality of opportunity for all with the right mix of talent, skills, and potential and welcome applications from a wide range of candidates, including those with criminal records. We select all candidates for interview based on their skills, qualifications, and experience.

For most of our posts, we use the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Disclosure Service and Scotland Disclosure services to help assess the suitability of applicants.

We comply fully with the various Codes of Practice and undertake to treat all applicants for positions fairly.
