    I scored 6777 for Coventry position and I am on a reserve list! I got offered a role for Solihull but can't get there so have to wait, can they say where you are on the list? Is there a contact number for recruitment? I emailed last week but had no reply, so frustrating!

    Very vague isn't she ? Lol I used to work for dwp , I'm still a civil servant but I left dwp because it was so hard to progress . I got an eo job for the home office now & I'm rembering the reason why I left with all this
    I think it's very disorganized and even at the interveiw in Cardiff when I asked about start dates etc I was told not sure, maybe June ? I think if they put you on such a list there should be employment at the end of it or just tell you no in the first instance ! Saves a lot of stress and confusion lol 😄

    Thank you, I'm so gutted! I think it's because they offered me Solihull first, I'm hoping that I will be near the top of lists. I don't get why they have lists anyway?

    No not yet. Im eager to know though lol. When I applied I initially only chose Bargoed and Merthyr but then Merthyr wasn't on the preference sheet that had to be submitted at time of interview. So I ended up ticking Bargoed and Tredegar but the member of staff who was photocopying all the info before the info said there were no longer vacanices in Bargoed so I panicked ticked Caerphilly and scribbled Ebbw Vale and Merthyr on the side 😂

    Yes. I completed it when I received the provisional offer last Wednesday. U haven't been asked to complete anything in addition to that though like a DBS form. I'm sure someone on here was asked to do that.

    I don't think that we will be required to complete the additional forms because we're part of the civil service already. I had a call from them and they asked me to provide a start date, they wanted people in positions by the end of may....2 WEEKS away !.

    I haven't had phone call. When was you originally offered a provisional position and in what offices? Do you only find the office you have been assigned to once you have had the phone call? I am wondering how long these pre employment checks will take. Security isn't an issue as I'm SC cleared but i have a feeling the long term sick I had from May to July 2015 will ruin it for me. I received managers discretion for it and I've had no sick since but I'm [s]innocent[/s][s]innocent[/s][s]innocent[/s][s]innocent[/s][s]innocent[/s][s]innocent[/s][s]innocent[/s][s]innocent[/s] my pants over it.... I fear they will revoke the offer.

    Would you be taking a pay cut though, surely it is better to stay in the Home Office then move upwards or is this an vertical change not a horizontal change?

    I had the phone call a few days ago, got my first choice within the manchester cluster. So they tell you the office on the phone call, for acceptance you need to send an email back. Not sure about the pre-employment checks, they may not conduct them if your already in CS.
