We’re quoted on the GOTHINKBIG website in an article how to get a job when you have a conviction. You can read the article here.  An extract of the quote from Unlock is below;

….there are organisations out there who specifically deal with people who might need a little more help. Unlock helps people with convictions to move on in their lives, one of these being helping them into employment.

Co-Director, Christopher Stacey said in reality there are certain professions that will take these minor offences more seriously (think working with children, vulnerable adults, etc), but there are others that won’t. But the first thing he explains is that people don’t always understand their criminal record.

“People tend not to understand it,” adds Christopher. “It’s best to apply for a copy of police record and work out what the employer is asking of you. It might only ask you to disclose unspent convictions, so if it’s spent, you don’t have to disclose it. You’ve really got to understand what your criminal record is.”
