Gaps in the table mean that we’ve been unable to get clarification from the organisation as to when they ask applicants to disclose their criminal record. We will be continuing to update and improve the information available.

Where we have concerns that an organisation which is signed up to the campaign is not ‘banning the box’ we will raise this with BITC. If you have any personal experience of applying for work with one of these companies (good or bad) please let us know by emailing feedback@unlock.org.uk.
