Thank you for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. A conviction where the sentence was a CPO order is spent after five years. However, the conviction will show up on a standard, enhanced or PVG disclosure which is used for certain types of job application. You can read about that here. https://www.mygov.scot/convictions-higher-disclosures/
