Owing to my choice of branch in the RAF I have to go through a very in depth security procedure. I filled out a *huge* form, which I sent off 10 weeks ago, and had a long fairly painful interview 6 weeks ago.
They need to interview at least 3 of 4 referees I gave them access to, as well as doing a full background check on me, my family and close friends.
Like I say, they've had 10 weeks to get going on this. I was told It would take 4, 5 at most.
I cannot start IOT until the clearance has been granted.
The RAF does not know what's going on, and couldn't chase them up except to say "what's going on?" even if they wanted to.
If I've got more than one or two final checks still outstanding on my paperwork, they won't get it done in time for me to start in August, which means I'll be delayed [if not chucked off completely] until mid-November.
Just a tad unsatisfactory, basically.
