9. Rehabilitation of Offenders Act

As a general rule, no-one need answer questions about spent convictions. However this general rule does not apply to specified professions, employments and occupations. By virtue of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) (Amendment) Orders, the exemption rule does not apply to:
a) any employment or other work which is concerned with the provision of health services and which is of such a kind as to enable the holder of that employment or the person engaged in that work to have access to persons in receipt of such services in the course of his normal duties, or
b) any employment or other work which is concerned with the provision of care services to vulnerable adults and which is of such a kind as to enable the holder of that employment or the person engaged in that work to have access to vulnerable adults in receipt of such services in the course of his normal duties
One or both of the above apply to work with the Agency, and covers all occupations.
You are therefore requested to provide details of all convictions, including those which would otherwise be considered as “spent”. All employment applications will be considered carefully, and the disclosure of a conviction does not imply that this employment application will be rejected.

Criminal Records – Disclosure Certificate

Disclosure Scotland have issued a Code of Practice regarding Disclosure Information, a copy of which is available upon request. A PVG Certificate (standard or enhanced) will be requested from Disclosure Scotland which will detail all convictions, including those which would otherwise be “spent”, as well as details of cautions, reprimands or final warnings. You will be advised of the type of certificate being requested, and asked to give your approval to this application. The PVG Certificate will only be requested in the event that you are successful in your application for employment.
