My name is Cj. I'm a 32 year old Facilities Manager.
I was recently successful is a three-stage interview at a very well known English North West Premier League football team for a property management position (managing H&S, maintenance, security ect) .
The property in question was used to train up-and-coming footballers (under 18's). So, at the end of the process they made the offer subject to references and DBS clearance. This worried me as I have the following:
2001 - Possession of Class B drugs
2013 (June) - Possession Class A drugs
Both cautions (not convictons). ie stopped and searched and had small quantity of something I shouldn't of had. in 2001 I was young and naïve and last summer I was going through a difficult time. Neither are acceptable excuses and I accept responsibility fully for my actions.
I researched whether they would show up on a DBS and couldn't quite figure it out so I thought honesty is the best policy. I informed the Club and they duly revoked their job offer. I was gutted. But once again, accept responsibility for my actions.
My questions is, have I shot myself in the foot? Would they have shown up on DBS check? I have emailed DBS to ask them. But thought someone here may well know?
Any experiences or advice appreciated
