Some scheduled maintenance is taking place on the candidate application system on Tuesday 22nd October and Wednesday 23rd October. This means that candidates cannot apply for roles or amend their application from 7am for approximately 3 hours. The system will be fully functioning after 10am.
You can join us if:
Please note we are unable to accept your application if you are an undischarged bankrupt.
The security vetting process will begin if your initial application is successful and we ask you to come for an interview.
Vetting is so important because we need to be sure that all our people are reliable and trustworthy.
Everyone who works at HMGCC is security cleared to the very highest levels. When you join us you will have completed a comprehensive vetting process that can take up to three months after you have been given your initial offer. It’s not long when you consider you could end up with a fantastic career for life.
If, after your application, you are asked for interview, you'll need to fill in the security forms. You will receive login details to complete your security forms online. There is a lot of personal information required in these forms so please start completing them as soon as possible to avoid any delays with your application.
Please bring photographic I.D. with you when you come to interview.

Decision in approximately three months
Before your interview, prepare in advance by looking at the job description advertised and thinking of examples of times when you have displayed these attributes to share with your interviewer. Each job will have specific competencies, so it’s definitely worth checking them out.
Be patient! The vetting process can take some time but don’t let this put you off. It’s a hurdle, not a barrier, to a great career.
As part of the process you will need to complete an online medical questionnaire, which may be followed up by our Occupational Health team.
We realise that some of our candidates may have experimented with drugs in the past and this need not be a bar to your application. However, taking illegal drugs, legal highs or psychoactive substances is incompatible with holding security clearance and we have a strict no drugs policy. You will be required to undergo a drugs test during the application process so you should adhere to our policy from the point of application onwards.
The point of application is the date you submit your application.
