What's the score with security clearance if you have former service?
In a previous life I was in a unit which required a considerably higher level of security clearance than normal. As a result I have already completed the standard SC process when I originally joined up and subsequently a more advanced SC process when I joined that particular unit.
Does this mean things might move a bit quicker for me or is it just a case of round the buoy again?
My bold, that was the case for me. I left the RN after having a high security rating due to the info I was privy too. My next job required me to have SC clearance and it took five months!!!!! To those waiting, be patient the DVA or whatever it is called today is relatively small and the number of applicants to not just the forces but CS and other government agencies are many!
It will happen, just takes a while. Take up knitting or something whilst waiting!!!!!:grin:
