Owing to the nature of the work for which you are applying, this post is exempt from the provisions of section 4 (2) of the Rehabilitation of Offenders act 1974 (Exemptions Order 1975). Applicants are therefore not entitled to withhold information about convictions which for any other purpose are “spent” under the provisions of the Act and in the event of employment, any failure to disclose convictions could result in disciplinary action or dismissal. Any information given will be completely confidential and will be considered only in relation to the application for positions in which the Order applies.
A copy of our Recruitment policy is available on request. A criminal record will not necessarily be a bar to obtaining a position unless Phoenix Support considers that it renders you unsuitable. In making the decision Phoenix Support will consider the nature of the offence, how long ago and what age you were when it was committed and any other factors which may be relevant. Phoenix Support adheres to the DBS Code of Practice. Further guidance can be obtained by reference to the DBS’s Code of Practice, a copy of which can be obtained from www.DBS.gov.uk.
Where the response to any of the following is “Yes”, full details should be given.

The Disclosure Barring Service states that any member of staff who works with Vulnerable Adults requires a Disclosure Barring Service BEFORE they can commence employment with PHOENIX SUPPORT.
The disclosure is a document containing information held by the police and government departments. Disclosure provides details about a person’s criminal record including convictions, cautions, reprimands and warnings held on the Police National Computer. Depending on the level of disclosure information may also be provided by local police forces.
All staff dealing with Vulnerable Adults are required to obtain a standard check. Staff that have a greater degree of contact with Vulnerable Adults will be required to undertake an Enhanced check. You will be advised which check you are required to undertake.
You must provide us with a current and satisfactory DBS check before you can commence employment with PHOENIX SUPPORT.
