    as it was a long time ago they will probably disregard any occurances that happened at the time

    if you have a criminal record, they will take this into account and look for what it was for

    It depends on a)what the ofence is and b) how long ago it was committed.

    If it was of a sexual nature then the CRB will discolse it to employers as certin jobs are unsutible for people with such convictions ..lifeguard being one of them as its working with kids and/or vunerable people.
    If its just like a parking conviction then it wouldnt matter. If your very worried then phone someone who may know more about it. Im sure someone here could point you in the right direction.

    So why not contact your future employer and disclose the details (and the fact that you were exonerated) to them voluntarily. That way if it shows up you're covered and if it doesn't show up you're still covered because you were aquitted.

    IIRC you're supposed to be given a chance to offer an explanation (in confidence obviously) if anything is flagged up that the employer is concerned about. I don't think they can just reject you on the grounds of a slightly iffy disclosure without some kind of negotations.
    True - but it makes you look more blameless/innocent if you're open and honest in advance rather than when you've been "caught out".
