Criminal records

This policy gives you information about what the University will do if an applicant or an existing employee has a criminal record.

  • Applicants must declare unspent convictions (and spent convictions for jobs exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (ROA)).   
  • We won’t take spent criminal records into account unless the job is exempt from the ROA.
  • We have the right not to offer someone a job, or to take action against existing employees, if they have a criminal record.
  • Existing employees should tell the HR Director (or nominee) about any criminal records they have.
