No job roles advertised by the Cabinet Office during 2016 and 2017 were excluded from the ‘Ban the Box’ initiative.

The Cabinet Office embraces and encourages diversity across its workforce; therefore none of our job application forms either digitally or physically requires disclosure of criminal convictions, and therefore meets the requirements of ‘Ban the Box’.
