How does a criminal record affect employment opportunities.

Customer Question

How long does a criminal record affect employment opportunities. The offences of assaulting police, resisting arrest and offensive language were committed by a young woman approx. 3 to 4 years ago and has got her life together since. If she wanted to go into aged care nursing how long would those type of offences affect her choices and also for any other employment that requires a police check.
