Students with a Previous Conviction


​Cardiff Metropolitan University Career Development Services are here to offer help, support and career guidance as you work your way through University and your chosen course of study. 

You may have a definite idea of what you are planning to do in the future or you may need some help to find information about the career routes that interest you. We can offer support if you are applying for a part-time job or a graduate opportunity.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss your career options or if you need to find information about further study options, gaining work experience or organising a gap year opportunity. The service can help you to manage your career progression and assist you in marketing yourself effectively. 

More useful Information

The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act is the main legislation concerning the employment of people with a criminal record. Some students may have concerns about disclosing previous convictions to an employer. If you would like to discuss this with a career advisor in a confidential environment, booking an appointment will give you an opportunity to raise any concerns that you may have when applying for jobs.  For further information visit TARGET Jobs equality and diversity page.
