You need to see what the terms are for the company you are looking at. Your credit record will be stuffed for six years from the start of your IVA.

There's nothing actually preventing you being a Mortgage Adviser but any firm you work for (or if you become directly authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority, the FCA themselves) would need to be satisfied that this will not have any detrimental affect on any advice you provide. Ultimately it is up to them how they do this, but some may simply decide that they don't want the complication. From my point of view some of the best Advisers I've employed have had their own credit issues in the past - it means they can empathise better with people! Have you got as far as thinking about the authorisation route you would take?
