Candidates invited for interview will be assessed during the selection process, in order to demonstrate they have the necessary skills and that they are suitable for the role.

 

 

 

If necessary, during the interview process candidates will be asked questions that relate to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, as well as their protection.  A CRB check may be required.

 

 

 

TO BE SIGNED BY ALL APPLICANTS

 

 

 

I confirm that to the best of my knowledge, the information given on this form is true and correct, and can be treated as part of my subsequent contract of employment.

 

 

 

Providing false information is an offence and could result in:

 

 

 

·         The application being rejected

 

·         Dismissal if the applicant has been selected

 

 

 

Unless the nature of the position allows the church to ask questions about an applicant’s entire criminal record, we only ask about “unspent” convictions as defined in the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.  We ensure that all those who are involved in the recruitment process have been suitably advised to identify and assess the relevance of circumstances of offences.

 

 

 

OR

 

 

 

I have attached details of any convictions, cautions or bind-overs in a sealed envelope marked ‘Confidential’.

 

 

 

I understand, too, that any offer of employment may be subject to satisfactory medical and legal clearance.

 

 

 

We have a ‘Recruitment & Equal Opportunities’ policy, which is made available to all applications at the outset of the recruitment process, which is in line with the CRB Code of Practice (available on request).  Criminal records will not necessarily bar a candidate from employment. 

 

 

 

It is expected that applicants should provide any information relating to criminal convictions of anyone living at the same address.

REFEREES

 

 

 

Please provide three referees as the Church will need to contact previous employers as part of the verification process if you are short listed for interview.  One referee should be your current or most recent employer.  Where the post involves working directly with children and you are not currently working with children but have done so in the past, one referee must be from the employer by whom you were most recently employed in work with children.  Please note, references will not be accepted from relatives but personal friends are accepted as referees but for one reference only.  We will contact previous employers ‘in writing’ to obtain written references, which may be verified by a follow-up telephone call.
