    Providing you are not an undischarged bankrupt, have unresolved CCJs or unresolved default notices & your monthly outgoings are less than 50% of your projected net income in Phase One Training, then there should not be a problem gaining Security Clearance if you have already passed selection interview.

    NS, when you leave the Careers Service, you could get yourslef a nice job with the Citizens Advice Bureau. The way these answers flow is quite impressive. :thumbright:

    I thought the Citizens Advice Bureau Advisor's were volunteers?

    The irony of being an adviser is the fact that outwardly you have to project a self-righteous stance with regard morality, criminal convictions, medical suitability, financial advice, etc.

    More often than not you actually have great empathy for the enquirer, but you are employed to advise rather than sympathise, so often it comes across as rather patronising or condescending - it certainly isn't intended to come across that way, it's intended just to be forthright & honest.
     
  13. Re: if you have something in collections will you get clearence

    My comments were genuine.

    They were not intended to insinuate you were in any way patronising or condescending. If that was the way it was received I appologise unreservedly.

    I think you and SM do a fantastic job on here, unlike myself and others who occasionally get pee'd off with some of the 'stupid' questions that re-occur.
     
  14. looking for advice..

    hi, i been looking on the forums for a couple of days now, and i have a couple of questions.

    i got my interview and tests on monday, and was wondering if anyone has any tips for me during the interview.

    also.. i have recently been given a ccj for £3500 through stupidity and have a car on overdue finance through the same reasons

    will that affect my application?

    thank you very much in advance.

    Practise and be honest
     
  16. Re: looking for advice..

    i have done the practise test. got 90%... will the debt affect me getting in though?
     
  17. Re: looking for advice..

    This may answer your question Security Clearence

    WN
     
  18. Re: looking for advice..

    so having a ccj will stop me from being able to go in? if i pay it off before i go in, and just have my car finance still running, will i be ok?

    its a total of 5grand which i could easily pay off in 6 months if i was in the navy

    mr2

    There are a couple of Royal Navy Careers Advisors around who will be able to give you clearer guidance on this. One or both of them will be on here over the weekend, so look out for their reply.
