    I got my start date emailed though today. 5th December for the Longbenton office.
    That's great news, out of curiousity when did you get provisional offer?

    Band O role from the reserve list. The wait was unbearable and I made sure they knew I was unhappy. I had to gain sympathy points by saying I'm behind on my rent payment and I did not take up other opportunities because of this role. Look through your emails to find any contact details as I think these might be specific to the location. I'm happy to send numbers and emails privately.
    I would like number

    Hey I'm in a similar situation, what location did they give you within London and was the 5th December the earliest possible start date? Also, can I get the email/phone number please.

    Thank you and good luck!

    Hi,

    I like the others are eager to hear from you!
    What location/role (O/HO) did you apply for /is this from the TSP reserve list.

    Finally my pre employments are not complete yet (DBS not sent despite fillied in etc) PLEASE provide the number you called.... as an email I sent yesterday was replied with some generic stuff not likely to comfort anyone.

    I am available to start but this waiting is making any planning impossible.

    Oh and I take it you took up boxing to handle the stress from this campaign, LOL...
    Same situation as you, dbs info sent but not completed and no further info since. What location are you? And which role?
    This waiting is making everything so difficult!

    I've emailed the general email addresses we have been given but has anyone tried to contact the individual addresses sent on the email regarding where to take documents to? Wondering whether they would know anything 🙄

    Has anyone else still not heard anything after the provisional offer? Haven't had to go in to give documents in or had to do dbs. This is for Liverpool.

    Getting very frustrated! Emailed them several times with no sort of helpful replies

    Hi there, London for O grade after TSP; what about you?

    I sent an email for info, received a generic reply....on the other 'caseworker HO' thread someone mentioned something very alarming; that some provisional offers may not be finalised.....knowing my luck I am one of those unfortunate few but they did say this was internal 'rumours'.

    This uncertainty is killing me.

    Manchester for O after TSP.
    Yeah ive just seen that, little concerning.
    I've sent an email to two addresses but no replies as yet. Im going to email the personal email address which sent over the info of where to take the documents, they probably can't shed any light on the situation but I suppose its worth a try.

    But for now, i'm giving in and looking for another job. I can't keep living like this for the next month, 2 months, half a year whatever its going to be.

    I just rang the e&c recruitment helpline on 0300 123 1896. The lady I spoke to said she was unable to help but gave the following email address: e&[email protected] .gsi.gov.uk.

    Absolutely fed up like everyone else in the same boat with the lack of communication. I requested them to confirm whether there is an actual offer of job. So that I can just put this shambolic situation to the back of my mind and get on with my life

    Quick update guys, my account has changed to formal offer without an email and have just accepted it.

    This was for the O band role in London, there's no indication on start date and location as of yet.

    Check your status guys! Did anyone choose alternative working pattern?
