    Thats where I'll be travelling from too, not looking forward to it, brutal long days! May have to investigate the feasibility of park and share once I get settled. Bit of local knowledge should help on the parking front, a guy I used to work with found a much cheaper place, will have to quiz him on whereabouts. Did you come off the TSP2016 or direct O/HO application?
    Yeah if I found somewhere cheaper to park it would be much handier. I came off the direct O/HO competition from September '15.

    Ouch, that sounds like a bit of a nightmare. 2 hours up and 2 hours back, 3rd of your day spent travelling!

    Awesome! Look forward to hopefully working with you soon. When did you find out your start date? That's all I'm waiting on.

    Around st Anne's cathedral there is parking for £4 for the whole day that may suit some just a wee heads up for you. Just leave a space for me haha

    Will do...were u comin from Cass1988? I got my start date back at end of August... should have been started but had to do a 3 notice period as we are very short staffed at the moment HMRC were really good about it. Once I got ok on pre employment checks it was pretty straightforward after that but i got my provisional offer in May and by start of August no checks had been done, so i called them to see what was happening

    Nice work! How long did you wait from the checks being complete to getting a call for the start date?
    I'm cheeky in that I only live 20 mins drive down the road

    Ah lucky you that would be great to live that close although I shouldn't complain hopefully an hour should take me in.......Checks only started at end of July and were completed by end of August but my campaign was done by CSR I believe it was a bit of a nightmare....I got my provisional in May and i heard nothing till I phoned them to see what was happening then it all took off and was complete within weeks as they were looking me to start 5th Sept originally.

    Not 100% where I'm starting, but did get an email a while ago from ISBC so probably individuals and small business compliance. Hope they're flat out, they'll want me asap 😂

    Sweepstake is open for formal offer/start dates 😂

    I'm betting on formal offer next week Tuesday 18th, start date 21st November. Might just be the optimist in me, but might also just stop me going barmy waiting for the call.

    I wonder if I can ask a favour, it would be useful, especially for those who have had all checks complete to get an idea of your timeline, so those of us who may be further back can have an idea what is still to come...

    Here is mine

    Campaign CSR/2066/15
    12th August (Provisional Offer:O Grade)
    11th September: Health Cert and DBS received and sent
    29th September: Email received asking me to bring in ID as the ones submitted were out of date
    7th October: Took ID into Moira House (This was the earliest date offered to bring it in)

    Thanks in Advance!

    Well I contacted my local Parliamentarian about this. Whilst he claims he cannot obviously involve himself in the process but he does agree this whole process has been completely unacceptable when I explained it and there shouldn't be a situation in the civil service where some people progress in the same campaign and others do not as the case may be here regarding 2066/15. He says he will contact both the Cabinet Office Minister (responsibility for Civil service as a whole ) and HMRC to find out what is going on. It's got beyond a joke as far as I'm concerned.
