    Glad it's not just me! Had my role & location on 4th Aug. My start date was meant to be 5th Oct but without an official job offer, salary, etc I don't want to resign from my current employer.

    Now within the next 10 days, it's so difficult when it's so dragged out because you don't really know where you stand with it all. Just wish we knew for definite that there was a job role for us all or not

    I was given my location, role, salary and a start date of 5th October a while ago but have heard nothing since apart from confirmation that my security clearance has all been completed.

    I rang yesterday to try to find out what's going on and was told that everyone who's been given next monday as a start date will be emailed today. Hopefully things will be a bit clearer for us all soon!
