    What's a "D* Clearance"?

    Does this read like a genuine requirement? What is a D* Clearance?
    Ironically, the skill set listed is EXACTLY what I do, but seems like they somehow want to filter me out with some absurd criteria

    My client based in London are looking for 4 x ABCD Developers to begin roles between October 2020 and March 2021, these are 12 month contracts and the project is due for completion in July 2021. D* clearance is MANDATORY for these roles, unfortunately if you do not have D* clearance you cannot be considered.

    If you do have D* clearance please keep reading, candidates should have experience in all stages of the development life-cycle including design, build, coding, test, deployment and support and will be confident in using ABCDEF systems. They will have experience working within a technical development team to develop and maintain ABC and XYZ.

    Must have (Exactly what I do):

    Experience of XXXXX
    Experience of YYYYYY
    Experience of ZZZ based XXXX
    Knowledge of ABC development


    If you are interested and will be available within these dates, please apply with a word version of your CV. If you are unavailable but you can recommend somebody, please ask them to reach out as there are 4 positions
    I'm in a situation where I wonder if they're filtering me out because my name doesn't sound white or if they actually want to hire someone on a visa, but are advertising the job here to tick some boxes

    The only D clearance I know about is in airside operations and relates to cargo handling / airside deliveries

    If you're just delivering pizzas I think a non-white surname may work in your favour
    I did a stroll around Windsor on 2 Oct for Alzheimer's Society. You can chuck me a few quid here if you like: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/lmallen-1

        I was an IPSE Consultative Council Member, until the BoD abolished it. I am not an IPSE Member, since they have no longer have any relevance to me, as an IT Contractor. Read my lips...I recommend QDOS for ALL your Insurance requirements (Contact me for a referral code).

          It is apparently the US College equivalent of UCAS.

            Euphemism for getting the “D” than “clearing” the house?

                  I'm not sure you qualify for security clearance... you posted a non httpS linky

                  edit... sorry.. not your fault apparently... it is 2020 and a world renowned University is publishing a Word Press site without SSL.

                    Doesn't matter as there's no private information or credentials being exchanged!

                    It would be if I asked someone to register/pay/login on it. For public read-only information it hardly matters if its not httpS
                    Accessing the http link is "acceptable risk" in this usecase
