The Babraham Institute aims to promote equality of opportunity for all with the right mix of talent, skills and potential. The Babraham Institute welcomes applications from diverse candidates. Criminal records will be taken into account for recruitment purposes only when the conviction is relevant. Unless the nature of the work demands it, you will not be asked to disclose convictions which are 'spent' under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. Having an 'unspent' conviction will not necessarily bar you from employment. This will depend on the circumstances and background to your offence(s).

However, all vacancies within our Nursery are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 because the positions entail working with children.

The Babraham Institute is continually trying to find ways to reduce its administrative costs, as such we have made the decision not to write to those candidates who have not been shortlisted for interview. Therefore, please be aware that if you have not heard from us within one month of the closing date, you can assume that your application has been unsuccessful.
