would say, former army service be classed as a first timer joining the Royal Marines for the SC rule. Would it need granting before starting RT, in that situation. Thanks in advance.Fresh applications are not being accepted for Security Clearance until after 10th April.
For re-joins full SC must be granted before a joining date is allocated. For first-timers, as long as SC is started & preliminary checkscompete a waiver can be granted & an entry date allocated.
An entry date, before anyone asks, cannot be requested until after passing PRMC.
