I have a police caution for the possession of a class A drug whilst at univeristy a few years ago.

I have just secured a new graduate role. The contract states i have to have "a CRB check" will it show. Should i come clean before the results come back.



Are you being standard checked or enhanced?

The contract states "You will be required to complete both a FSA (basic financial) and CRB (criminal record) check.

Nothing more

If its a basic CRB check then this should not show on your record.


If it doesnt' comment then its probably safe to assume that this is just a basic check. If they wanted anything more intensive they should have disclosed it.


If you are enhanced checked then it will show.
