    They wont do a CRB check and it isn't called that anymore. Its called DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service).

    DBS is only for people working with vulnerable people, therefore you need not to worry.

    However, you may be asked for a security check if you are working in the nuclear industry or weapons industry. Then they will see your caution.

    Good thing I never want to work in those sectors, despite the salaries.

    I have no plans to work in high power energy, such as nuclear, or in defense/weapons. But it's not a bar to entry, so if it comes up, I'll just disclose at interview.

    Many engineering firms will require that you are Security cleared as they often deal with technology that is to some degree classified, normally up to SC (security clearance) or DV (developed vetting).

    If you work in an industry that is not involved in national defence you may still find they require the employees are security cleared depending on the sectors you are working in. Aviation industry as an example will more than likely require security clearance.
