Step Up Job Application Continued
Please Complete the Declarations Form Below
Step Up provide a support service for vulnerable adults and is therefore exempt from provisions of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. As such we ask applicants to disclose all previous and pending convictions on this form which comes under 3 sections – Other Information, Declaration and Convictions.
With the exception of offences against vulnerable groups, previous or pending convictions will not automatically bar an applicant from employment. We consider each conviction on a case by case basis.
Prior to employment, all successful candidates are vetted via the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme. If a PVG record reveals information that the successful candidate did not provide in their application, then the discrepancies will be raised. If a successful candidate has not revealed a conviction this suggests a misunderstanding about the impact of Rehabilitation of Offender legislation and as such if this situation arises the individual is subject to be summarily dismissed or have employment withdrawn, irrespective of the nature of the conviction.
All information provided is STRICTLY confidential.
