The Department for Transport facilitates all its recruitment through the Civil Service Jobs recruitment platform and has done so since March 2013. This platform does not ask for applicants to enter any criminal record history or declarations at the point of applying. The Department therefore has been aligned with the aims of the Ban the Box initiative from this time.
