Undergo vetting reference and counter terrorism security checks to gain clearance
You will undergo vetting reference checks and counter terrorism security checks to gain security clearance.
The background checks that we conduct are more in-depth than those conducted at eligibility stage via the police national computer. We search many national and local information databases.
It is essential that you are open, honest and transparent with us when completing the initial application and vetting questionnaire forms towards the end of the process.
Not disclosing information on your vetting form may delay you joining or even mean your application is rejected. If in doubt, seek advice and/or declare the information on your forms.
The vetting and references process can take up to three months to complete.
