Applicants Who Have Lived Overseas

For applicants who have resided outside of the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland for a period of 6 months or more, it will be mandatory requirement to obtain a Police Clearance Certificate from those countries stating that you have no convictions recorded against them while residing there.

Applicants will need to provide a separate Police Clearance Certificate for each country they have resided in.  Clearance must be dated after the date they left the country/countries. Seeking security clearances from other countries (e.g. UK, USA etc) are the responsibility of the candidate. It is a process which can take an amount of time, therefore if candidates are interested in pursing a career with Bloomfield Health Services we would recommend that they commence seeking international security clearances now.

If candidates require overseas security clearance and are unable to produce it at the time of job offer then the job offer will be withdrawn. Candidates who receive job offers will have 5 working days in which to produce the required documentation; otherwise the job offer will be withdrawn. When requested, a copy of the police clearance will be retained on file and the original returned by post.

United States of America:

Please note that valid Security/Overseas Clearance from the USA must be obtained from the FBI only, travel.state.gov/content/travel/en.html

FBI Clearance is valid for all of the United States and convictions / remarks occurring anywhere in the United States would be noted.  Individual US State Clearance (e.g., New York State Clearance) is not acceptable as it is valid for that State alone and convictions / remarks occurring in other States may or may not be noted.


Other Countries:

For other countries not listed above you may find it helpful to contact the relevant embassies who could provide information on seeking Police Clearance.

Please Note: Any costs incurred in this process will be borne by the candidate
