Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I will help you with your question.
Would this be a basic CRB check that is carried out against your name?
Im not sure , what ever an employer would request
What type of employment are you thinking of going for? Why role?
Probably a basic job like shop work or pub/restaurant work
That would be a basic CRB. Enhanced CRBs are used for things like working with children.
Basic CRBs show all unspent convictions.
that's a possibility with children as I would like to work at my daughters school
As you were sentenced to 10 months imprisonment (this is the key, not how long you serve), this means that your conviction becomes spent after 10 years.
So in your case the conviction would show up on both a basic and an enhanced CRB.
If an enhanced search is carried out then even spent convictions are revealed on them.
ok is there any way around this as I really want to work again
In all honesty, no.
It will stay on a basic CRB for 10 years.
The only thing you can do is try and explain it away, and show to your employer that you have changed and learnt new skills and so on.
ok thanks for that I,ll just have to take my chance.
I'm sorry to have to give you negative news like that.
Is there anything else you would like to know?
that's ok at least I know now
After the 10 years will it automatically come off my crb
Yes, it would.
that's good, thanks for your help
If this answers your question fully, would you rate the answer as highly as you can for me please?
Thank you too.
no problem you've been very helpful
Take care and good luck.
