The information on the following pages has been brought together to help you when you are working for Medic International. We aim to keep it up-to-date but occasionally links change which we are not aware of. If you spot anything that doesn’t work in the way you think it should, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To take advantage of this service, please download the official Post Office Identity Checking Service form here.
You will need to provide a clear photocopy of each of the documents you would like to have certified (to a maximum of 3 at any one time) and take these together with the originals and the completed form to a Post Office branch.
The Post Office staff will check each document against the original, date and sign each photocopy with the words, ‘this copy is a true likeness of the original’ on each document and give you back all your documents. This enables you to then send the certified copies to Medic International.
Not all branches of the Post Office provide this service. To find the closest one to you, please use the Post Office branch finder here.
We do hope you find this service of assistance.
Medic International is committed to the fair treatment of its staff or users of its services, regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, responsibilities for dependants, age, physical/mental disability or offending background.
Our written policy on the recruitment of ex-offenders is made available to all Disclosure applicants at the outset of the recruitment process.
We actively promote equality of opportunity for all with the right mix of talent, skills and potential and welcome applications from a wide range of candidates, including those with criminal records. We select all candidates for interview based on their skills, qualifications and experience.
A Disclosure is requested as part of our thorough risk assessment and relevant to the position concerned.
Disclosures form part of our recruitment process, we encourage all applicants called for interview to provide details of their criminal record at an early stage in the application process. We request that this information is sent under separate, confidential cover, to a designated person within Medic International and we guarantee that this information will only be seen by those who need to see it as part of the recruitment process.
The nature of the position allows Medic International to ask details about a candidate’s entire criminal record as defined in the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.
We ensure that all those in Medic International who are involved in the recruitment process have been suitably trained to identify and assess the relevance and circumstances of offences. We also ensure that they have received appropriate guidance and training in the relevant legislation relating to the employment of ex-offenders e.g. the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.
At interview, or in a separate discussion, we ensure that an open and measured discussion takes place on the subject of any offences or other matter that might be relevant to the position. Failure to reveal information that is directly relevant to the position sought could lead to withdrawal of an offer of employment.
We make every subject of a CRB Disclosure aware of the existence of the CRB Code of Practice which is available at all times on Medic International website.
We undertake to discuss any matter revealed with the person seeking the position before withdrawing a conditional offer of employment.
Having a criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working with us. This will depend on the nature of the position and the circumstances and background of your offences.
