All SFO employees and contractors must fulfil the requirements of the Baseline Personnel Security Standard (or Basic Check, ‘BC’) prior to joining the SFO and many of our roles will require a higher level of security clearance, Security Check (‘SC’). Offers of employment are made based on the satisfactory outcome of these checks. The level of clearance for the role will be explicit on the advert. You should note that due to the nature of our work, the Serious Fraud Office has an exception to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions Order 1975) which means that as part of the Basic Check you must disclose any spent or unspent convictions, providing as much detail as possible. Failure to declare a conviction may disqualify you from appointment. If you have any spent or unspent convictions for fraud, theft or dishonesty it is unlikely that you would be appointed.
