I have been offered a job – how long will it take before I can start with the Household?

Everyone who works for the Household will be security cleared. Vetting information is not required when you first apply. However, if you’re successful in being appointed, you’ll be asked for additional information and to complete a security questionnaire.

This is nothing to be concerned about. We will contact your professional, and sometimes personal, referees. We'll also undertake background checks in order to process your security clearance.

This usually takes about four to six weeks, but can take longer according to the individual case. During the vetting process, much of the work goes on behind the scenes, but we'll endeavour to keep you informed during that time.
