    I have just rang the number that was posted on here a few days ago. Spoke to a guy who said that basically the original team that handled all this fell behind with it all (which is obvious) an they were brought in a month ago to start handling the data etc. He reassured me that i was on the list and just waiting for the pre employment checks to be completed which je said should be in the next few weeks. He did say though that most are in the same situation as me. I dont know if he was referring to my location or in general but if you look on here they seems to be a lot of people for croydon getting offers. Maybe they are doing it by location?

    Was the number you rang location specific? If not could you message it me please. I'll probably just get the same answers as you but I've been told i have missing document just not what documents, told me the vacancy holder should be in touch about it which they haven't 🙄 So close to withdrawing, 3 years at uni was never this stressful.

    Has anyone who is on the 1320/1321 application who hasnt had a formal offer as yet heard anything/ had any update?

    I was told on Friday by them that they expect to be sending out further batches of formal offers early this week, but things on here now seem to be contradicting the timescales?

    A week and a bit ago, I'd got bored of being kept in the dark about whether Manpower were handling my checks. I managed to get through to the correct department and they said that the photocopies of my ID, that had been taken at interview, had not been photopied correctly!

    I then had to arrange a day off work to take my documents to be re-photocopied.

    My advice would be to chase them and make sure they have all your relevant info because they could be sitting on it.

    You must be luckier than me! I've just phoned Manchester who gave me head office in Newcastle who gave me an email which turns out to be the home office! Helpful! NOT!! What a joke!

    Who did that email come from? Was it direct from hmrc? Also, had you previously been to the AC providing docs? Hoping I can just scan my passport :-/.



    Was this the wmp email address or the isbc.e&c one? I don't even know which one is my first point of contact now as it's taken multiple emails to both over 3 weeks to get a response. Nothing seems to happen without chasing up, and presumably the dbs process can't start until they have proof of residency. It begs the question would we just sit at this status indefinitely? Or, worse, until they eventually say that since they didn't get docs within appropriate time frame the offer has been withdrawn despite not actually us for them. Maybe now a lot of the 13xx/16 seem to have had some progress they'll have some time for us 16xx/16 ones now.
    The email came from a [email protected] and they asked me to send it to BSS. Maybe they accepted my scan as it was just a proof of residence (?)

    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.
    I'm in the same boat - no formal offer yet...sill at provisional offer stage. Pfft

    This is such balls! They have so obviously screwed up and lost documents because I got told the same thing re: Nottingham and I remember specifically looking at the copy of my passport that was taken and it was slap bang in the middle of the sheet of A4 but they said the numbers were missing off the bottom of it...erm...no they weren't! Absolute nonsense.

    It's a wonder anyone is left to accept the formal offers after the farce re: recruitment!

    I'm at the same stage. I haven't even passed the pre-employment checks from Manpower yet. I finished my DBS and health checks over two weeks ago. Not sure what the hell they are doing now. So much for having the checks done in 20 days.

    I did yesterday by sending an email query to that E&C Support team email but I doubt they will do anything about it as it says on the job advert that they cant guarantee our preferred location. We just have to hope we can talk to the new manager and he/she might be able to help out.

    Whereabouts will you be travelling in from?

    Im coming in from east London from a zone 4 station and east Croydon is zone 5. It is pricey if you travel via zone 1 i.e. London Bridge.

    Oh wow. did you get that reply today after emailing them on Friday?
    The thing is I am also waiting pre employment checks to be confirmed for an O grade tax role 1667/16 so I might take that on and then wait for the formal offer for Stratford. I need to get out of my current HMRC Department.
    Did you accept the offer for Croydon? Because I already have and then just sent a query yesterday about how far it was.
