I came here earlier in the week so worried as my DBS check came back and looked awful, I took the bull by the horns and spoke with my area manager about
it and was totally honest about
my conviction and she was great, she said she would need to chat to HR but was sure I would be ok. Anyway she called today as she had to cancel our meeting and said she mentioned it to HR who said they would only be looking at safeguarding issues and as it wasn't anything to do with that they were not bothered, my area manager said I didn't need to tell her but was delighted I could trust her and was so honest with and how much respect she had for me.
I was bloody amazed! There are truly some really nice folks out there that see past your conviction, I knew the charity I was working for was amazing but they rock now.
I'm just so chuffed and a weight as been lifted now.
