Hi, I've recently been offered a job as an assistant accountant at a chartered accountants firm. I have been honest with the finance manager from the beginning about only being one month in to an IVA. She has advised this isn't an issue and I only have to declare it. I have been sent my contract and "fit & proper" form, I obviously have to answer yes to the question regarding agreement with creditors. She has reassured me this won't affect my job but I'm so concerned that I will leave my current job and then this new job will fall through because of my IVA. Do you know if you are able to work in practice with an IVA?
I suspect, as in our industry, this boils down to your employer satisfying themselves that you are fit and proper. Normal that is down to their interpretation and long as they can justify it to their regulator I would be very surprised if there was anything specific exclusion.
