Hi Scott

security guard is not one of the occupations prevented by BR

however some of your potential jobs may be sensitive so the employer could object. although an employer cant turn you down for selection to a job for being BR, in a competitive market they may find "a more suitable candidiate"

On a practical note, if time permits obtain your licence and job, then if you are able to negotiate a settlement with your creditors do so, if not apply for BR but in view of your job inform your employer, if they have seen that you are a good reliable worker thay are likely to keep you on.

good luck scott

regards Richard

Richard is right. I have recently dealt with a debtor who held a security licence. I checked with both The Isolvency Service and the SIA, both of whom confirmed that bankruptcy did not affect your security licence.

All the best

Here is an interesting link that should show everybody to whom the OR writes. It also states where the bankruptcy might be affected.

Were you aware for instance that if you were a plant breeder and held a plant breeders right (which may be an asset)The British Society of Plant Breeders would be informed.

Amazing what you can learn.

Seriously though there may be catagories here which affect some of our visitors to this site.
