Security Cleared IT Jobs

Home / Security Cleared IT Jobs

Certes are experts in the security cleared IT jobs market and have helped thousands of candidates realise their potential in this broad and varied employment sector. 

Most security clearances for IT positions last up to 12 months after a project is completed and there is usually no need to go through the process again if you join a security cleared IT post during that timeframe.

Please be aware of the following when considering a security cleared IT job:

  • If you have not gained the required security clearance for a particular position you will not be able to begin your employment until it has been granted.
  • Security clearance is not limited to just UK nationals but granted to non-British nationals as well.
  • You will have to satisfy the criteria that is stipulated for that specific level of clearance. 

We specialise in filling vacancies in the security cleared jobs sector including:

Not Already Security Cleared?

Finding employment within the security cleared IT jobs market is much easier if you are already security cleared and have a valid security cleared IT jobs ticket. But this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t apply for vacancies within this sector if you are not already security cleared. As long as you meet our credentials, we will help you secure that ideal position or contract for when you have received your security clearance.

There are four main types of national clearances for security cleared IT jobs:

  • Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS) and Enhanced Baseline Standard (EBS) – also known as Basic Identity Job Checks. These are not formal security clearances, but are designed to reassure an employer of a candidate’s honesty and reliability if they are given access to confidential data. 
  • Counter Terrorist Checks (CTC) – this level of clearance is required for employees who may come into contact with information regarding national security.
  • Security Check (SC) – is given to people who will have access to secret or top secret information and is prominently required for government work.
  • Developed Vetting (DV) – this is the highest level of security clearance and required for individuals who have unlimited and unsupervised access to top secret information or those working within intelligence or government security agencies.
