    I got drunk and did something stupid, had a fight with my big brother and got arrested.
    We since made up as usual, bit now I have a police caution.
    I was told caution is not a big deal as it is not a criminal record.
    But I found out in lot of professional jobs they do ask about, any police caution records.
    After university I want to enter a career in accounting/ banking and I am wondering do they ask about police caution when they do a criminal check, I think they would be very picky as the world of finance is very competitive.
    I would be great full if someone can give me advice.

    An enhanced CRB disclosure includes any cautions you've received.

    I think that a caution only stays on your record for a few years and then it is written off? I would check, but I don't think they keep it on record forever....
