long story, let’s get to the crux...



I might require security clearance at SC level


Do you require SC right now for a role you have been offered (or have accepted)? If the answer is “no”, then there’s nothing to worry about.
If the answer is “yes”, then apply and see what happens.

Hi,

I have recently had allegations made against me, for which one of the charges I was formally found not guilty in a crown court. The other 3 charges which were lesser offences that also i didn't do, they were discontinued before the trial happened in the magistrates court. All charges were part of the same case, nothing majorly messed up, however the police made a huge deal about an electronics project i was working on... a road was shut off... etc, that was the charge that was completely dropped in a crown court before it went to trial and i was found not guilty, the others were to do with someone lying to the police about assault to not be taken in for questioning about the electronics project... the whole situation was really stupid but also a nightmare to go through

I have no convictions, however, I have a caution for a minor theft from 6 years ago, I'm not the same person as I was back then, ever since my stupidity from 6 years ago, i have gone to college and achieved top grades and then to a university which is ranked quite high, achieving a first class honours in Computer Science, with a high overall average above 80%

Also, I have an average credit score for a graduate, between 400-500, however, I do have a student overdraft which isn't due to be paid back anytime soon, but i am into it by just over £1000, i don't get charged this or pressured to pay it back by my bank yet, I plan on paying it off as soon as i get a graduate job.

I might require security clearance at SC level, i was wondering if my background would have a significant impact on my chances at obtaining clearance?

Thanks in advance

You only have to declare unspent convictions, i.e. things you were found guilty of, and even then there is a time limit which iirc is 5 years.

Now DV in anther kettle of fish. For that they want to know all about your complete internet profile.

Hope you spend more time understanding where to put sensitive documentation than you did working out where to post this.

Putting it back?

Did you nick it?

They obviously don't do a module on how to use online forums though.

No idea. Just do what it tells you in our wonderful 48 page sticky in the Business section.

According to the FAQs from an application 3 weeks ago, you have to declare all convictions (except parking and speeding), spent or not, home and abroad. They will check against the Police National Computer.

Declare everything, they will ignore if not relevant, and you not hiding anything then!
