Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Being ?
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I don't know what information you require ? The are doing a criminal background check and it obviously flags up about my conviction
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I am a little confused as to how this works ???
I thought I asked a question and you gave me your opinion ??
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 month ago.

Oh yes, I can do that but it will probably be wrong because I don't have enough information to give you informed advise.

What I need to know is what level of checking are you facing?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I am not sure what you mean by the level of checking
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I am waiting for your response
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 month ago.

The reason you are experiencing delay is that you keep posting before I have responded which pushes the question the back of my list.

There are three levels of checking - basic, standard and enhanced. Which do you face?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Oh I am sorry , I've never done this before so I apologise, as far as I know it's a standard check ?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 month ago.

OK. No problem.

You need to ascertain whether it is basic or standard. If basic this would have dropped off already as you are through the buffer period.

If it is standard checking then it would still be there unless and until it is filtered after 11 years.

You are probably just basic checked given the industry.

Can I clarify anything for you?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
How would I know what sort of checks are being done. And I thought the law change a few years back ? To help the rehabilitation of offenders . Ironically it was my motor insurance who told me this
