Hi Guys

 

Im about to start a new job and it requires 5 year security clearance.

Now what does this actually mean being a resident for 5 years or does it also mean anything else?

 

Im just trying to get my head around it thats all.

 

Cheers

F

Hello there.

 

Are you able to tell us what type of organisation you're going to be working for please? And have you asked them about the security check? I don't see why they couldn't explain it to you.

It's a Satellite Telecoms company. I know there is a general jist on security clearance.

 

My criminal record is clear.

No CCJs etc.

I'm also a British national.

 

This is my dream job and I just want to make sure I get this :-)

Security check means you are of perfect character and have an excellent work ethos.

 

Basically you have to be clean as a whistle.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

I should be fine.

My only concern is the work tracing back 5 years.

 

One company is now defunct, another has been rebranded and im not sure if I could get them to confirm if I was employed there.

I also did some temp work too so dates are sketchy for that at best :-(

I am also going through the same process. My understanding is that for security clearance you need to have minimum 5 year residency not 5 year employment record. But what I am trying to find out is whether you have to be in Uk for last 5 years consecutive or not? . As I moved to UK in 2004 and stayed here for 3 years. Then I went out of UK in 2007 for 1 year and at present it is about 2 month short of 5 years . Will it affect my security clearance ?

If they say 5 years residency then they mean consecutive years. There would be allowances for military etc
