      Criminal convictions

      Criminal records will be taken into account only when the conviction is relevant. Declaring a conviction will not prevent you from being considered for a post. You will be asked to disclose convictions that are not ‘protected’ under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. Certain roles will be subject to satisfactory checks for criminal records, Adults’ Barred List and Children’s Barred List with the Disclosure and Barring Service, Access NI or Disclosure Scotland before an appointment is confirmed. These checks will request details of cautions, reprimands or final warnings, plus any convictions and will check if you are on the Adults’ and Children’s Barred List. Please refer to the Role Description to check if this applies. Please note, for ‘Disclosure Scotland’ checks there are no ‘protected’ convictions or cautions. In line with the Access NI Code of Practice, Action on Hearing Loss has a policy on the recruitment of ex-offenders and a copy of this policy can be made available to you on request. If you would like us to send you a copy of this policy, please contact the Volunteering Development Team at

      If ‘yes’, declare convictions in a sealed envelope marked: ‘Head of Volunteering Development, Private & Confidential, Addressee Only’ and send to:

      Jane Bailey, Head of Volunteering Development, Action on Hearing Loss, Community Base, 113 Queens Road, Brighton BN1 3XG.
