Having a criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working with us; this will depend on the nature of the position and the circumstances of your offences. Disabled applicants, in line with our commitment to 'Two Ticks', will be guaranteed an interview where they meet the essential criteria and declare their disabled status. The Trust will accept applications in other formats where applicants have disabilities that require a reasonable adjustment for them to be able to apply for vacancies; consideration in respect of additional time for postage/delivery time etc will be given.
