    We want to raise awareness of phishing to protect the people who might fall victim to recruitment fraud and dissuade potential scammers from attempting to pursue this criminal activity.

    Recruitment fraud is usually perpetrated by advertising and offering fictitious job opportunities via legitimate online services, bogus websites and unsolicited emails. The offers claim to originate from a company, such as Heathrow Airport. These activities aim to obtain sensitive information and financial benefit from the people who have been scammed. For more information, please see our dedicated page on phishing.

    To comply with Department for Transport regulations, some positions will also require you to complete a criminal record and counter terrorism check. The resourcing team will advise you if this is required.

    The purpose of a Criminal Record Check is to enhance public safety by providing Heathrow with any criminal history information on individuals applying for posts.

    Disclosure Scotland issues a Disclosure Certificate, which provides details of an individual's criminal convictions. There is no charge for this service.

    A Counter Terrorist Check (CTC) is a clearance level required for individuals employed in certain roles and establishments. It involves checks into areas such as employment records, criminal records, Security Service records and may also involve a Security interview.

    Yes, you can still apply if you have a criminal record, but any offer of employment will depend upon a list of qualifying criteria.

    We will still require you to complete a CRC Form (this covers the last five years) and this will be processed as normal.

    If this does not identify any disqualifying records your application will continue through the process as normal.
