Credit Check - Debt Question

Hey,

I'm 28 now and I've waited years and years to sign up because of a couple of stupid things I done when I was younger.. now that I'm considered "rehabilitated" I've finally submitted my application, only to find out that I might trip up because of debt issues...

I don't owe ten's of thousands... but it adds up to maybe 6 or 7k and I do have a couple of CCJ's from earlier this year - which I haven't been able to resolve due to being dirt poor.

My question is this... does anyone know WHICH army jobs require a credit check before entry???

I'd hate to get told that I can't join because I owe wonga money...

another question, would being bankrupt stop you getting into today's Army at all ?

Why dont you just say what jobs you want to go for and maybe someone can advise you based on those, rather than listing every job that requires a credit check.

There is a rule as to the amount of debt you can join the Army with (max 35% of pay in training) and it is extant for every job in the Army. A mortgage will be looked at slightly differently.

You must declare bankruptcy and CCJs can also bar enlistment.
