Applicants are, therefore, not entitled to withhold information about convictions which for other purposes are ‘spent’ under the provisions of the Act”.

Please provide details below if you have been convicted of a criminal offense or been the subject of a conditional discharge or probation order. (Past criminal proceedings are not necessarily an obstacle to taking up a post. This occurs only where the offense/s is/are deemed relevant. Any details will be discussed with you should you be the successful candidate based on your supporting statement, interview and tests).
