  4. Sticky Thread Sticky: Security Clearance (SC) Q&A Read first before asking questions

    Please find below an accumulation of questions that have featured on some of the many reptitive questions about SC.

  7. Sticky Thread Sticky: Behaviour in the Professional Forums

    I have noticed an increase in squabbling and bickering in the Professional forums of late. I am not amused. I do not care who starts the squabbling. I will finish it by banning all participants. The more persistant the squabbling the longer the ban. Feel free to disagree and correct but...

    Just had a bizarre voicemail from my agency who have said that they are doing a couple of audit checks. Apparently my contract renewal start date is 'wrong' and should start on the 1st April 2018 instead of the 3rd April. The reason I asked the end client to start it on the 3rd was because the...
