    I got an email with access NI pin today for Feb HO campaign. Got the DBS equivalent last Tuesday for the June HO campaign. Hopefully not too long until checks finish for me now for one of them!

    Happy days, fingers crossed! It's mad that you're waiting on the same role for campaigns with four months between them, lol. AccessNI are on the ball, quick turnaround of certifica, so shouldn't be long until "Your pre-employment checks have been satisfactorily completed" e-mail.

    Thanks, I hope so! Was on the reserve list for the February one when the June one came out so thought it best to apply for that too. Any start date for you yet?

    Hi Kez, do those getting start dates include 1667 (ex TSP)? Fingers crossed, lol. I'm not even sure if 1667 was classed as internal or external, was transferred onto it from TSP. Doesn't really matter I suppose, just waiting for that date now!

    Well I've had a lot of movement in the last few days. More movement in the last few days than there's been in the last 12 months. Seems they can't get it done quick enough now with both CSR and HMRC contacting ..So .... hopefully shouldn't be too much longer

    Got an email today asking me to bring ID into Moira House, but I did that on the 7th October.

    I replied and asked if they needed ID in addition to the documents I handed in on the 7th, and they replied to say they would need to see what happened to the stuff I handed in almost 2 weeks ago, so I guess they have not started processing my application yet.

    So I need now to wait and see if they have it, or I need to take it in again.

    Yea I'd say you'll need to bring it on a few times over the next 20 working days. These things can get lost in the post after all.

    If you have a Band O post would you say it's likely/unlikely you'll be in post before Christmas?

    I got an email back to say that they have tracked my documents down, so I don't need to bring any more in.

    I asked if they could tell me what part of the process I am at, and they said they could not, but once the documents arrive with CSR, then it should be completed within 20 working days.

    So that would be mid November, before I get a formal offer. And then a period after that before I get a start date.

    Looking unlikely to be this side of Christmas.

    Yea I'd imagine it won't be before christmas now especially those like us with EO posts. They will place the HEOs first I'd say. As long as they send me that message to say employment checks have been completed etc then that's all that matters. I'm content to wait until after christmas as I have a family member getting married over christmas and have leave booked at my current employer so it would be best if I don't have to go through that rigmarole with my new employer.

    I am waiting on an o posting as well however as someone with the ACCA tax exams i was wondering if there is any benefit to having these? ie would some people get started at a higher pay point? Also, does anyone know if there are any opportunites to climb the ladder internally? I know this is slightly off topic but worth a try

    There's only 1 salary and it doesn't change bar a 1% change every year or somethin to do with inflation. If you want to " climb the ladder" so to speak you will have to apply internally for higher posts

    I'm informed that everything has been slowed down deliberately as they basically bit off more than they could chew by recruiting too many staff at one time. This is nationwide. I'll count myself lucky to get a date before Christmas.

    Woohoo! 😁 Let's hope my info was relative to the slow up we've all been experiencing already! Chuffed for you.....and me, because I'm usually about a week behind you, lol. Sounds like they realise you will have to give notice and are getting your desk ready, lol. Which reminds me, space at Belfast at a premium, lots of hot-desking going on. Let's hope you don't have to attend that Christmas party!
