Work For Us

Our aim is to attract and develop creative and committed staff who take a real pride in their work and who understand the impact that education and training or support in finding employment will have on people.

All our work is based on the results we achieve therefore we want to recruit exceptional staff capable of meeting challenging performance targets.  This is why we aim to support our staff as individuals and as a team – in their jobs and in their professional development. The people we recruit must also genuinely care about what they do.

Employing people with a criminal conviction

We  recognise the contribution ex-offenders can make as employees and welcomes applications from them wherever possible. All applications from ex-offenders will be treated on their own merits and any special criteria relating to the post or contract will be applied. For example, some of work we cannot employ people who have certain convictions or where there has not been a set time since the date of their sentence to the date of their application.   For  teaching, assessing and employment adviser/ coach vacancies please see guidance notes below on criminal convictions.

At the interview stage, we tell all applicants that due to the nature of our work and the clients we work with, any successful applicant will be required to complete Disclosure forms from the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB). An Enhanced disclosure will be required. This will highlight any previous spent or unspent convictions. We therefore ask all applicants to disclose any convictions to us. An applicant may wish to disclose this information to us in writing, prior to interview. Again all applicants will be treated on their merits. Not their past.
An applicant’s criminal record, in itself, will not exclude that person from being appointed to a position. Discretion may need to be exercised where it is felt that a recent and/or serious conviction might mean that a person might re-offend or cause harm. Each case will be considered on its merits.

Finally any disclosure by an applicant of their criminal record is strictly confidential. The only people within the organisation who will know about a conviction is your Line Manager, our HR team and the organisation’s senior management team.
