Security cleared jobs

Of course finding a job within security clearance is easier if you are already Security Cleared and have time remaining on your security clearance ticket; however this doesn’t mean that if you aren’t cleared you shouldn’t apply for contracts/jobs. Providing you’re a great candidate and the vacancy doesn’t need to be filled immediately, remember it can take quite a few weeks to become SC, you still have a good chance of securing the role.

It’s worth noting that most security clearances last up to 12 months after the project finishes, obviously if you rejoin a security cleared post within 12 months there is usually no need to go through the process again.

For more details on what it means to be security cleared and the vetting process visit our How to become security cleared page.
