Care Support Worker Application Form

REHABILITATION OF OFFENDERS ACT 1974 and EXCEPTION ORDER 1975 Because of the nature of the work for which you are applying, you must provide information about any convictions. Our power to require this lies in the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975, which removes the normal operation of the Act in relation to specific occupations, including the provision of Home Care Services. In the event of being employed in connection with this application, any failure to disclose such convictions could result in dismissal or disciplinary action. Crossroads Care Rotherham follows a Code of Practice about the fair use of disclosure information, and a copy is available on request. If you do have any previous or outstanding convictions, details of the type of offence, date, sentence, fine etc. should be brought along with you to the interview, should you reach this stage. A criminal record will not necessarily be a bar to obtaining a position.
NB. The above section will be detached prior to shortlisting.
Your details will be kept secure and we will never pass your details onto third parties. For full details, see our Privacy Policy below.
EQUALITY & DIVERSITY MONITORING NB. The following section will be detached prior to shortlisting
