    Try from the frying pan into furnace. Nah it's not that bad , it's all changing and getting better to be fair. I don't understand why I haven't been contacted yet about this job 1320/16. Everyone seems to have had an offer now on here.

    Just had my formal offer, starting on 28/11.

    Been waiting for this for ages and now I'm a little disappointed as I've been placed in Central Compliance Operations (CCO).

    I'm gutted because the hours are:
    between 8am - 8pm Monday to Friday and 9am - 4pm Saturday and Sunday. You will be expected to work a flexible working pattern on a roster of shifts to cover these operating times which may include working Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays. You will be given four weeks’ notice of your shift pattern on a rolling basis.

    Basically the worst department for someone who's worked flexi for 8 years.

    Business and Compliance. 12 week training period. Workings hours during that time are between 8:30 and 5:30.

    Does this mean I can't start any earlier than 8:30? :/

    For those who have received formal offers, what are your notice periods? Are you all able to start on the 28th or will you be negotiating?

    Possibly but you'll be on your training so no point in coming in early...
