      I dont have much expereince really in anything tbh apart from computing which am still doing at uni

      Been looking for a part time job mainly looking at call centres as my friend owns a resteraunt and can give me a reference


      Anyways the thing is everytime I get a call from a call centre they always do crb checks where I tell them what my conviction is and they dont accept it has happened to me now several times

      Now does anyone know any kind of job that wouldnt require a crb check or any expereince/qualifications I am willing to learn but it would have to be part time

      Am not into face to face sales before anyone recommends it

      Getting a Job with a criminal conviction

      any type of IT job that doesnt require personal interaction with customers, or viewing classified data should be ok. Unless you have an extremely bad conviction. if its just using drugs or something you should be fine

      most call centers will require CRB checks and a security clearence as they have sensitive data

      edit: not sure what you mean by "looking for call centers as you have a friend who owns a restraunt that can give you a refference" because he owns a restraunt wont make him a better reference for a call center job? or am i misunderstanding what your saying?

      anyway, i know the IT industry fairly well, so if you need any help with anything give me a shout

      Unfortunate mate that you have had quite a few turndowns...

      And a good advert to younger folk not to commit crime as it can really cause issues further own when you decide you want to live a more serious mature life!

      As said above jobs which dont require the eomplyee to be accessing senstive data etc (shouldnt require background checks)

      Getting a Job with a criminal conviction

      I work in Investment Banking. I have numerous convictions and had a stint inside when younger. Also I got a caution for possession of 3g of coke last year. IBs do CRB checks but all of my convictions apart from the coke one are spent so don't show. I had to declare it for my last job and they were fine. HR guy sated "If we had to sack everyone who had a possession offence, there would be nobody left in the building". Comical.

      What have you got? When? Why do call centres do a CRB check?

      It's a driving conviction along with careless and perverting the course of justice (gave mates insurance details)

      The worst one is the pervert charge

      IT Is hard to get a job in unless fully qualified so am just looking for something to make ends meet while at uni
