Of course finding a job within security clearance is easier if you are already Security Cleared and have time remaining on your security clearance ticket; however this doesn’t mean that if you aren’t cleared you shouldn’t apply for contracts/jobs. Providing you’re a great candidate and the vacancy doesn’t need to be filled immediately, remember it can take quite a few weeks to become SC, you still have a good chance of securing the role.
It’s worth noting that most security clearances last up to 12 months after the project finishes, obviously if you rejoin a security cleared post within 12 months there is usually no need to go through the process again.
Key industries of SC contracts and jobs are:
- Nuclear Industry
- Anti Fraud
