    For those that have received a provisional offer, when do we find out what office we'll be posted at? If you've been made a provisional offer and pass the checks, does that mean there is a space in one of the offices you've chosen?

    Just to let you guys know, I doubt they've even started the DBS check, it's the civil service. They don't start the checks until a atleast a month after the provisional offer. A start date in August looks likely. If you've been made a provisional offer it only means that they will place you and not that there's space in ur top locations but they shud definitely place you.

    I received notification that I was on the reserve list on 6th of this month. Had nothing else until this morning I've received an email asking me to complete a disclosure check. Is this good news or standard practice? Heart jumped when I saw the email was from DWP but it's probably nothing ha.

    I got 5554 and only chose 2 locations so I'm thinking they are doing it to everyone on reserve list. Can anyone confirm?

    I received a provisional offer for Yorkshire on 5th May, since then I have been contacted by the contact noted on the job description to advise me of the jobcentre I will be at and to discuss start dates. This morning I received an email from DWP Onboarding asking me to complete an online form for DBS check which I have now completed.
    Looking forward to starting in mid June once I have worked my notice in my current job

    I got the exact same scores, but I haven't been asked to complete a DBS. The only extra document I have got so far is a pension questionnaire. So possibly sounds like good news for you.

    Well I replied to the email asking why I've received it as I haven't been made an offer yet and as far as I was aware was still on reserve. They responded that it was an error and I shouldn't have received the email in the first place!

    Hi everyone,

    Could someone help me please? How did you input your references on the next stage? It asks for 3 years of reference plus 1 character one but I only have 1 place to input it. I've only been at my current workplace for 2 years.

    Thanks

    That's so disappointing. I'm on the reserve list for London and praying some people don't accept the job so i get a chance lol
