Hello, my name is Ben and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
This is a formal conviction, regardless if it is a conditional discharge or not, so if you are specifically asked whether you have any previous convictions you would have to declare it. However, this will eventually become spent because most convictions have a 'rehabilitation period' after which they do not need to be declared if you are asked whether you have a criminal record or an unspent conviction. So whether you declare it in the future very much depends on the specific question that is being asked. Assuming the conviction is spent, then you do not have to declare it unless you are asked if you have ever had any convictions or if you have any spent convictions.
If you do not declare this when you should have (i.e. when the wording of the employer's request specifically requires you to declare it, as described above) then you may be guilty of misrepresenting your position and if this is discovered before you start the job they may withdraw the contract, or if it discovered after the job has started - it can prompt the employer to consider terminating your employment, depending on when it was discovered (i.e. the longer you have been there without this being an issue the more difficult it may be for the employer to justify dismissal)
Please let me know if this has answered your query or if you need me to clarify anything else for you in relation to this?
