National Criminal History Check
National Criminal History Checks can be applied for online via the Veritas Check website. On average, 7 out of 10 applicants will receive their results within 60 seconds or less.
Please note, a recorded criminal history does not automatically preclude a person from being appointed to a role with Anglicare NT. When a criminal history check demonstrates a criminal history, a Criminal History Risk Assessment will be undertaken by Anglicare NT. Anglicare NT will only make a distinction against someone if the criminal history is relevant to inherent requirements of the job and/or poses a risk to organisational activities.
In addition to the National Criminal History Check, all applicants (both staff and volunteers) applying for roles in Aged Care, who have been citizens or permanent residents of a country other than Australia at any time after turning 16, must complete a statutory declaration. In accordance with the Department of Health Police Certificate Guidelines, the statutory declaration must be made prior to commencing work in any aged care service and state that you have never:
- been convicted of murder or sexual assault; or
- been convicted of, and sentenced to imprisonment for, any other form of assault.
This statutory declaration is in addition to a current national police certificate, as this reports only convictions recorded in Australian jurisdictions.
Please contact the Human Resources team on 08 8985 0000 if you have any further enquiries.
