Hi Everybody,

My wife has been offered a job with British Airways in there contact centre. Her start date is the 14th August so a week today. They have now told her that whilst checking her credit report they have a concern about our IVA. This was completed 18 months ago but obviously it still shows on our credit file until early next year.
We are getting concerned that with just a week to go until she starts her job, can the IVA be a stumbling block for her starting?

Thanks.

This seems very harsh especially as the IVA completed. If they have concerns show a copy of the completion certificate which confirms that all debts were discharged and that she complied with her obligations to creditors. Even if she was still in the IVA this would be harsh but for one long closed it seems particularly unfair.

Totally agree that's its unfair, especially that she has put her notice in from her old job too start this. It has got us on tender hooks awaiting there email from HR department. :x :x

I would imagine that they do not fully understand what an IVA is and might need a little educating.
