Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Got a friend who's about to apply to work for the MoD.
    They have an interview shortly & hopefully will get the job!
    But on the Security Clearance form they will need to put down they have/had Depression.
    Would this rule them out of getting SC?
  2. No, the only things that would result in not being cleared are things like membership of 'subversive' groups, or British citizenship being in question - that sort of thing.

    If he/she was eventually to go into a post that required a higher security clearance then the depression MIGHT be an issue (but not an outright rejection).

    If DVA had any concerns at all then they'd request information from the doctor.
  3. Cheers will pass it on to them.
