So as the title says, I'm getting a bit of a flap on about the financial vetting checks. So far I've breezed through the application, assessment centre and fitness test. Have my interview in a couple of weeks and I feel like my prep for that is going well.
I have no worries about the security vetting (One uncle with an ABH charge from the 70's that I haven't seen for 5 years and a smackhead cousin I haven't seen for 10).
My own record is miraculously clean, not so much as a speeding ticket on there.
My worries about the financial checks are probably unfounded but any info from folks on here would be appreciated. I have no CCJ's or IPP's, never been bankrupt and when I've done a few online credit score checks they've all been between 750 and 850 which (I think?) is OK.
But, I do have a few credit cards that are all around their limit. Nothing unmanageable, I think I've missed one or two payments in the last 3 years. And I have a car loan which again is more than manageable. My concern is that on paper this all looks like a lot. Is this likely to go against me?
The last time I wanted a job this much was when I joined the army, and the hardest test then was to not eat the crayon they gave us to fill in the application. So any help or reassurance anyone may have would be fantastic.
