Although having a criminal record can limit the number of jobs available to you, the system does allow for offenders to rehabilitate themselves through work. Most jobs remain open to those with a conviction, although the nature of the conviction may affect suitability, and in the majority of cases it is a legal requirement to disclose to the employer a prior conviction. It is necessary though to first check that the job you are applying for is exempt under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, as it will not require a disclosure. Some convictions can also be 'wiped' from your record, often due to their minor or underage circumstances. If an application for a job requires disclosure, a confidential sheet can be attached to the application that explains the nature of the offence, circumstances and time spent imprisoned. Several organizations provide support for ex-offenders attempting to build careers, including Nacro, the Apex Charitable Trust and NewLife. It may also be useful to research a company's record or policy on Equal Opportunities.

None. It's hard enough to find a job without a record. With one, you may as well just start your own business now because noone will hire me at all. I have a 4 year degree from one of the nations top 20 schools and it might as well be toilet paper. (2 misdemeanors, 2 summaries but years ago) This country only instills the convict mentality further by making it so difficult to truly get your life back together, even after small non-violent drug offenses.
