  2. I've got a colleague that would be well suited to this role. Do you have a southern UK based unit?
  3. 54 MI Coy (V) is based in Bristol. Apart from that 3 MI Bn (V) operate out of London.
  4. Will we need to be DV'd? I'm not sure I'd pass DV - I've posted on ARRSE.
  5. Double_Nickel, this sounds like an interesting opportunity, I've PMed you.
  6. Well, the southern half of England really. If you're not in the land where rainbows are black and white get in touch.
  7. South of Birmingham is all 'that London'
  8. Is DV required?
  9. DV is part of the process
  10. Yes, however you may well be worrying about nothing, DV has been approved on some very suprising characters over the years.
  11. what is required as part of the process?

    I currently have a security clearance (SC) to work for my company? What is the real difference between the 2?
  12. Ministry of Defence | About Defence | What we do | Security and Intelligence | Defence Vetting Agency | Defence Vetting Agency (DVA)

    Start here for the basics. Make sure you have saved enough paperwork to document your finances and personal situation, and be prepared to tell the interviewer what kind of smut you like to look at on the internet.
  13. Probably should point out that you don't need DV in order to apply. Once you pass the trade course you'll then undergo further vetting.
  14. Thanks for those who have been in touch. Not much from the Nottingham/East Midlands area? Anyone in the area thinking about it please get in touch.
