DV

#1
If this is a sec issue to talk about - MODs please delete!

I'm planning to join the Int Corps early next year (when out of debt), and I have been wondering about the vetting process.

I have been speaking to an ex Spec Op that I work with currently at a TA unit about DV. I have nothing whatsoever to worry about, except maybe for a slightly misspent youth (no record). I am worried about, however, the part of DV that you provide the names and addresses of every line manager you have ever had?

I have a had a few jobs over the years, and some of which I left on bad terms. I don't think I could call these companies and ask for full names and addresses of the people I fought with!

Do many people fail DV? If so, is it generally for potential links to the wrong people, or questionable past (define questionable?)

I'll fill the form regardless and go for it, but I'm just really curious now!

in my experience, people generally fail vetting for lying, or trying to conceal something. or having dodgy relatives, which there isn't much you can do about.

no matter what you've done, they've heard far worse.

Guaranteed.

I'm just wondering how much of an issue it would be to make an educated guess about start/end dates of jobs I've done, and put in the only addresses I can find for them. I can't imagine I could be failed on the basis of my memory?!?

Just tell the 'truth'. Unlike two twin brothers on day one at Ashford in early 80's who admitted, in their 'getting to know you stand up bit, and in front of the assembled DS, to running a car ringing scam - binned next day! - DOH!

No matter what anyone has done, CR has done far worse.

yep it was O4M. and thanks to you, i am now receiving PMs from strangers asking for photographs.

as if that isn't worrying enough in itself, the individual in question once started a thread with the following title:
