    I applied for London. But haven't been asked to complete a DBS form.
    If you applied in London you already completed the DBS before the interview, at least that is what I and others experienced on the day.

    I received a provisional offer of employment for London but have concerns about the pre-employment checks as I have a conviction on my criminal record and fear that my DBS will let me down.

    Just wanted to know if any one else is or has been in the same situation or have any advice on moving forward?

    Did you disclose your conviction? If you disclosed the conviction and depending on what it is you should be fine however if you didn't disclose, you may find they'll ask more questions just the same as any job.

    Hey everyone
    Anyone know what the situation is with Middleton applications? I got an offer for Oldham but I'm starting to go a bit crazy because my status and everything hasn't changed from reserve list, no new documents either.
    I'm probably just being impatient but yeah is anyone else in the same boat?

    Did you have a provisional offer or were you placed on the reserve list?

    The only thing that has been confirmed by Markymark1992 previously is that the region directly under review is manchester. This is probably because they have not offered the locations in order of merit.

    I got a call on Monday offering me a job at Oldham. The person who rang just told me to send an email to someone and that's all I've heard since. They said they wanted to start people asap and she mentioned a provisional start date of 23rd May which is Monday! But seeing as though I've not heard anything since I don't think that's happening ha.

    Yeah she mentioned the start of June to me, at least we're both in a similar situation that's reassuring haha!

    Maybe it's just taking long than anticipated then.

    I thought she was a bit optimistic when she said about starting on Monday because I know how long all these checks can take sometimes!
    Hopefully we'll start soon 🙂
