    I'm haven't heard a thing since provisional offer in August. Starting to worry as people in Liverpool on here have been contacted by the looks of things!
    I wouldn't worry too much, I'm in the same boat but Manchester. Haven't heard since 24th August. I also emailed them on 29th September and haven't had a reply yet.

    I think the 20 days was for how long the dbs was supposed to take from us consenting for it to be done. Basically 20 working days from accepting the provisional offer.

    I received a provisional offer for an O grade role on 16th August on the back of TSP 2016 and have heard nothing either

    So frustrating isn't it! Are you waiting on Liverpool too?

    Out of interest, of those who got to the assessment centre for TSP 2016 but fell short, have there been any HO offers or is it just O grade?
    Me and the guy I'm sat next to both got offered HO roles after the assessment centre, he was on the tsp reserve list and I was just unsucessful.

    Everyone prepare yourselves for the E-Learning because if your roles anything like mine there is absolutely loads of it!

    Does anyone reckon it's worth getting in touch with the dbs service to see if they can provide any info? I know if you have an application ref then you can ask for updates on your dbs but I was never given one

    They can tell you if the have an application under your name, postcode and date of birth. I filled in 'next stage' for one of my applications on 11/9 but they never had anything for me when I checked. For another campaign I received a link and code through from manpower on Tuesday and can track it with DBS already.

    Yeah give them a call all you need is your name and the employers name.

    Once hmrc request a DBS for you it shouldn't take too long so I'm assuming the longest part is them actually requesting the DBS

    I have just called DBS and they don't have an application under my name. HMRC is really taking their time with that... this is pathetic now
