Clearly you are not bothered one little bit.I have the stacker fellow on ignore
he will wade into all sorts of conversations giving it large, and his brain is bigger and more powerful than Bertram Russell and Einstens combined ,his brain is going to be donated to medical science , I only wish that it would, removendo partes corporis mortem
he is the sort of fellow one meets in offices and building sites all over the place, wades into every conversation and knows it all
and has to have the last word, and tries to sway the usually male audience over to his way of thinking, the same little gang that always laugh at his jokes and not so pithy comments
hopefully when the pubs open again, he can have his usual place at the bar alongside his peer group
Oh look a delivery driver speaks.
Stacker, enough. You are clearly just trolling now and it’s embarrassing.
I really don’t understand your upset here- would you rather I just give up on life and claim benefits? Surely you can agree it is the healthier option that I dust myself off and seek work. I’ve had some hurdles but this won’t stop me and thanks to this thread sparking some ideas I will continue to move forward.
This isn’t the NAAFI.
Admin Vortex makes a good point here, be upfront with the conviction. Some employers may not look favorably on someone who has a lot of time invested by the prospective employer, interviews, etc to then discover at the last moment just prior to a job offer that at the last stage of checks your conviction comes up, to some it might look like an attempt to hide this.@NuggetBks
About 20 years ago, I got in a spot of bother featuring some youthful exuberance with some nightclub doorstaff.
I had to declare my conviction (threatening behaviour), and still got a job in the financial services. Realise that your conviction may disbar you short-term from some work, but be upfront about it.
Any employer should view it on its merits; you buggered up once, it was a mistake, end of.
Remember that you can disclose your convictions before the DBS! The DBS should ideally just be a proof of what you’ve already told them.Many thanks and I genuinely appreciate that.
I’ve made contact with an employer (that was recommended on this thread) and although they are not recruiting currently they have confirmed their policy towards the rehabilitation of offenders. Again, for anyone else reading this thread in the future some learned experience- Some employers do not carry out a DBS check until you are further down the recruitment pipeline. It is important to keep in mind that the final decisions about recruitment following a DBS check is rarely in the hands of the interviewers, but instead a more senior member of the HR team. I’ve had two conditional offers of employment pulled due to DBS. Moving forward I’ll adjust the industries I’m interested in and perhaps it may also be a good idea to indicate to the interviewers beforehand that there are personal circumstances you wish to address in the interview.
Thanks again for all the advice and assistance
