                Only Part B of your application will be submitted to the selection panel
OSIC USE ONLY




                                               DECLARATION
Security Clearance
Security clearance is required for this post. If you are successful we will ask you to complete a security
questionnaire. This form will explain our security vetting policy. We can only make a formal offer once the security
clearance process is complete.

Criminal Convictions
Other than spent convictions, as defined under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, have you been convicted
of a criminal offence, or are there any criminal charges outstanding against you?

 YES / NO


If you are invited to interview you will be asked to give details of any criminal convictions (and outstanding criminal
charges).

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.

Criminal records will be taken into account for recruitment purposes only when the conviction is relevant. Having an
„unspent‟ conviction will not necessarily bar you from employment. This will depend on the circumstances and
background to your offence(s).


Declaration
The information I have provided in Part B of this form is complete and accurate to the best of my knowledge. I
understand that if it is found that any statement is inaccurate, misleading or incomplete, I will liable for
disqualification or, if appointed, to dismissal.

Under the terms of the Data Protection Act 1998, I agree that the information given in Parts A and B of this
application and Equal Opportunities Monitoring form may be processed to provide management information for
recruitment and equal opportunities monitoring purposes. This information will not be retained longer than it is
needed and paper records are normally disposed of after 6 months. Applicants will have the right of access to any
information held about them.

I confirm that I have read and agree the conditions and declaration above:

I declare that the information given in this application form is complete and accurate.

Signature:                                                           Date:
