I have applied for a new job in an administration role at a car rental company and have offered the role (recieved my starter pack). I recieved a online profile application today which requires them to do a DBS check and soft credit search, during the questions I put that I was in an iva which starsted in May 2016 and ended October 2017 but I am so worried I am going to lose my chance for the job because of this. Has anyone had any experience?

Hi Foggy, thanks for relying. It asked me on the profile application if I was ever made bankrupt, had any CCJs, been involved in an IVA or any country court judgements. I was open and honest and wrote my completion date. I also emailed the recruitment manager who is in charge I believe informing him details and I wrote at the end ‘I just wanted to be sure this won't cause any problems with my job offer?‘. I am now worrried I may have declared to my information. The third company doing the checks said they would see a full report of the checks anyway...
I wouldn't worry too much, the specific question was asked and you answered it honestly. Questions like this are common place and normally do not have a bearing on much if they are seen as finalised and closed without issue.
