Welcome to the Forum.
I'd agree with everything Caterpillar says. I speak to people every day who, despite having a criminal conviction have secured employment in many roles and professions.
This conviction is just a very small part of who you are. Remember don't disclose your conviction too early (i.e. not on an application form) allow an employer to see your skills and strengths first.
Good luck with the job hunting. If you feel it would be good to have a chat with somebody who has been in a similar position, please give the Unlock Helpline a ring.
