    Please give the details of two work related referees, including your current or most recent post. If you cannot provide two work related references then the second reference should be from someone who has known you at least five years and is not a member of your family.

    If you are applying for a care job, ideally one reference should also relate to your last period of employment of not less than three months duration involving work with vulnerable adults. Work related referees should be able to comment on your ability to meet the demands of the post for which you are applying and also confirm your reason for leaving that employment. Referees will not be contacted without your prior consent. Please indicate on the form whether the referees you have given will be expecting a request for a reference

    As Rockdale Housing Association meets the requirements in respect of exempted questions under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, applicants who are offered employment in certain posts will be subject to a criminal record check from the DBS before the appointment is confirmed. This will include details of cautions, reprimands or final warnings, as well as convictions. This check may also include reference to the DBS Adults Barred List. A criminal record will not necessarily be a bar to obtaining employment with the Association, but inclusion on the DBS Adult Barred List will. Our procedures will be carried out in the strictest confidence and in accordance with the Disclosure and Barring Service Code of Practice. The amendments to the Exceptions Order 1975 (2013) provide that certain spent convictions and cautions are ‘protected’, are not subject to disclosure to employers, and cannot be taken into account.


    We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all sections of the community. Under the Equality Act 2010 we are asking the following questions to ensure we can facilitate any applicants who may have a disability within the meaning of the Act. Information provided will be kept confidential.

If your application for employment is successful, personal data gathered during the recruitment process will be transferred to your personnel file and retained during your employment. The periods for which employee data is held will be provided to you in a separate privacy notice. We will not pass any data to a third party and you have the right to say that you do not want us to hold onto your data.
