Recruitment process

If you are successful at interview you will be required to undertake pre-employment security checks.

You will be sent a security questionnaire which must be accessed within 24 hours and completed within 72 hours.

Please note, these checks can take up to 10 weeks (or possibly longer if you have lived abroad or travelled extensively).

You will only be offered a start date after the checks have been completed. If the outcome of these checks is not satisfactory, your recommendation for employment will be withdrawn.

Errors can lead to significant delays in gaining security clearance and will delay the agreed start date. Therefore, please make sure you read the instructions carefully and give all the information required.
