St Joseph’s Specialist Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Posts are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and successful applicants will be required to undertake an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) certificate. If the post will be in regulated activity with children and / or adults, the DBS certificate will include a check of the relevant DBS barred list(s). It is a criminal offence for barred individuals to apply for work in relevant regulated activity.
Amendments to the Exceptions Order 1975 (2013 & 2020) provide that certain spent convictions and cautions are ‘protected’. These are not subject to disclosure to employers and cannot be taken into account. Guidance and criteria on the filtering of these cautions and convictions can be found on the Ministry of Justice website or in this document.

Shortlisted candidates will be asked to provide details of all unspent convictions and those that would not be filtered, prior to the date of the interview. You may be asked for further information about your criminal history during the recruitment process. If your application is successful, this self-disclosure information will be checked against the information included in the enhanced DBS certificate before your appointment is confirmed.
