Important information and FAQs for applicants
Do you have the right to live and work in the UK?
We have a legal responsibility to ensure that we only employ individuals who are entitled to live and work in the UK. In all cases, before you start work we need to confirm your eligibility to work by checking original documents as listed in the eligible documents list below. Full details of eligibility to work in the UK are available on the UK government website.
We reserve the right to carry out any checks that may be necessary to verify the information that you provide to us. These checks may include:
- criminal records
All offers of employment are conditional on us receiving satisfactory references covering a minimum period of three years.
By submitting your application, you confirm the validity of all information supplied to us during the recruitment process, and give your consent to any reasonable screening and background checking that we undertake. If it is found that inaccurate information has been given, any application or offer will be withdrawn immediately and relevant authorities informed where appropriate.
Will I have to disclose a criminal record?
Current legislation states that people with a criminal conviction don't need to provide us with details of spent criminal records. However, there are certain job roles where it will be necessary for us to be aware of all spent and unspent criminal records as part of the recruitment process. When recruiting to posts which are relevant to these criteria, we may require a satisfactory Standard or Enhanced Disclosure Check as part of the recruitment process.
We value every application we receive - when you submit your application online, you should receive a confirmation message when you submit the form.
