Please note

Second Chance aims to promote equality of opportunity for all with the right mix of talent, skills and potential. We welcome applications from diverse candidates. Criminal records will be taken into account for recruitment purposes only when the conviction is relevant. Unless the nature of the work demands it you will not be asked to disclose convictions which are ‘spent’ under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. Having an ‘unspent’ conviction will not necessarily bar you from volunteering. This will depend on the circumstances and background to your offences.

As Second Chance meets the requirements in respect of exempted questions under Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, in positions for which it is appropriate, potential volunteers will be subject to a criminal record check from the Criminal Records Bureau, before their acceptance is confirmed. This will include details of cautions, reprimands or final warnings, as well as convictions.
