Additional Information
Rehabilitation Of Offenders Act (Exemptions) Order 1975

UK Athletics welcomes applications from all candidates. Criminal records will be taken into account for recruitment purposes when the conviction is relevant. Unless the nature of the work demands it, you will not be asked to disclose convictions which are 'spent' under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. Having an unspent conviction will not necessarily bar you from employment.

Please note that the position for which you are applying may involve unsupervised access to children, young persons and/or vulnerable members of society. Therefore, applicants who are offered employment may be subject to a criminal record check from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) before the appointment is confirmed. This will include details of any cautions, reprimands or final warnings as well as any convictions.
