This process is called disclosure. You will be asked to complete a separate Disclosure Application Form which will be forwarded to the Criminal Records Bureau for checking. Once completed, they will send your employer details of any criminal record. As part of the disclosure process you will receive a copy of the completed check direct from the Criminal Records Bureau.
A disclosure check will not be made without your consent, although you should be aware that refusal to give your consent could result in an appointment being withdrawn.

In making this decision the employer will consider the nature of the offence, how long ago, what are you were when it was committed and any other factors which may be relevant.
