For certain positions, it will be necessary for us to verify the details you have supplied (for example, in relation to your identity, employment history, academic qualification and professional credentials) and to conduct pre–employment background checks (for example, in relation to previous criminal convictions or financial standing). The level of checks will depend on your role, in particular if you will occupy a regulated role, and will be conducted at as late a stage as is practicable in the recruitment process and often only after you have been selected for the position.
