    Interesting topic as I've often wondered about this. Hopefully someone has first hand experience. A friend of mine reminded me there are still loads of non sc jobs about although probably similar to you, at times it feels like everyone requires clearance.

    Will a criminal record result in clearance being refused?
    Not necessarily. Each case will be judged on its merits. The important thing is to be completely open about any criminal history - including spent convictions and police cautions.

    Any attempt to hide information could be taken as evidence of unreliability/dishonesty and may affect the clearance.

    Well a new law passed in May 14 about minor offenses being struck of a DBS check after a certain amout of time. Criminal record has always bothered me I dont even apply for jobs which say they do checks, no point as I will have to explain why I ended up in a young offenders institute and I cant justify it. Now this new law wipes of certain old MINOR offenses so you may be ok.
