Thoughts really. Spoke to an IT recruitment agency about a NATO role last week and it's seems my SC clearance is still current because I'm still in the TA (I've not used my other clearance for over 12mnths so the other one has lapsed). A few checks and this practice is recommended for staying cleared (not official of course). Seems like I'd be using TA but MoD/My own business point of view - it's just a practical arrangement. On the TA side - work stops me from holding a slot in the ORBAT and obviously attendance would be difficult.
