I am looking for some advice if possible. I have recently been convicted of a 12 month driving ban due to a drink drive incident whereby I was 8 millilitres over the specified limit. I am a training professional to be an accountant under the CIMA body. I have already contacted CIMA to let them know, who said it will not impact my membership to CIMA, I have also told my employer.
I am looking to get information on what I need to declare in my future on this, as originally I thought that I would only need to declare this to employers until it is spent, but from what I can see, I will also need to declare this for the rest of my life due to my profession?
The part I don’t understand, and am extremely worried about, is do I just declare this if asked if I have any spent convictions? As most employers I work for ask “Do you have any unspent criminal convictions, motoring included”
I am struggling to understand if I have to actually declare it to the employer on my own back, or if they ask if I have any convictions, regardless if they are spent (Which not many employers do)
I am just worried, that I will never be able to get jobs in the future and would really like some help if possible.
