An interesting list, but I would dispute the inclusion of Virgin Group. I worked for what is now Virgin Media. They quickly dismissed me once I was convicted and told me to never darken their door again. Never mind that I had 21 years of unblemished service.

I knew about a few of these, as I was signed up to Prison Superstars, shortly before being released, this is with the EFFRR (Employers Forum For Reducing Reoffending) and they are connected with Pertemps agency. Thanks for the other information, it's sure to come in handy.

What the corporate mothership says and what HR/Hiring decision makers do.......frequently different things. So much spin. I spent years in corporates (inc some central and local government).....never EVER again. So many people more sickening than many of the politicians. Many more honest people, and with integrity, I met in prison.

onwards and upwards

From another post Stig quoted M&S "The main issues are around unspent convictions. If a young person has an unspent conviction they will need to be willing to declare this. ... M&S Head office will decide whether the placement can
go ahead or not you will be notified of their response."

There is a move to prevent standard or enhanced checks being asked for illegally and also SARs. See this ico.org.uk/news/blog/2014/Key-battle-won-in-war-against-forced-subject-access-request


Nice find aim what they need to do is go after the big boys and make a few headlines that should hopefully put off the rest then nothing says dont do it like a six figure fine.
