Rehabilitation of Offenders:

Any of the information you give us will be treated as confidential and will not necessarily mean that your application will fail.

Candidates will be advised of the outcome of their application, as soon as practical.
As an employer we are committed to Equal Opportunities and any successful candidate will be selected on merit only.
We are committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all of our workforce share this commitment.
