Let's talk about Safeguarding

Trinity is committed to the safeguarding and protection of the children and young people that we work with. As such, all posts are subject to a safer recruitment process, including the disclosure of criminal records and vetting checks. We ensure that we have a range of policies and procedures in place which promote safeguarding and safer working practice across the organisation.

We are committed to the fair treatment of applicants on all protected grounds and in relation to all history of offending. We promote equality of opportunity for all with the right mix of talent, skills and potential and welcome applications from a wide range of candidates, including those with criminal records. In line with the requirements of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (1974), we select all candidates for interview based on their competencies, qualifications and knowledge.

Application forms and our interview process will contain a statement that you will be required to disclose any potential issues with criminal record checks which will be carried out if you are offered a job. The information will only be seen by those who need to see it as part of the recruitment process. At interview, or in a separate discussion, we ensure that an open and measured discussion takes place on the subject of any offences or other matter that might be relevant to the position. Failure to reveal information that is directly relevant to the job sought could lead to withdrawal of an offer of employment. We undertake to discuss any matter revealed in a criminal check with you before withdrawing our offer of employment.
