Criminal convictions

Have you had any previous convictions not regarded as spent under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974?

Having a criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working for the CAB – much will depend on the type of job you have applied for and the background and circumstances of your offence.

For some posts, an offer of employment will be subject to a CRB check. If this applies to the post for which you are applying, this will be noted in the application pack.


Please provide the names, addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses of two people who may be approached for references. One of these should be your present or most recent employer, the other could be someone who knows you in a work related, voluntary or academic capacity. Both referees should be able to comment on your suitability for the post applied for. References will only be taken up for successful candidates following interview.

Entitlement to work in the UK

A job offer will be subject to confirmation that you are permitted to work in the UK in accordance with the provisions of the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996. You will be asked to provide evidence of your entitlement to work in the UK if you are successful and an offer of employment is made.

Please note that Citizens Advice does not hold a sponsor licence and, therefore, cannot issue certificates of sponsorship under the points-based system.


I confirm that to the best of my knowledge, the information I have provided on this application form is true and correct. I understand that if appointed on the basis of false information contained in this form, I may be summarily dismissed.

The Citizen Advice service is committed to valuing diversity and promoting equality. We encourage and welcome applications from suitably qualified candidates from all backgrounds regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.

In order to achieve these aims we need to know about the diversity of people who apply to work in the service. Please help us by providing the following information.

All information will be treated confidentially and will be separated from your application form before making any selection decisions.
