    I am on the reserve list and had the health declaration added to my attachmentz. I'm a current dwp employee. Just seems weird if they aren't offering us anything, to add it after the recruitment has ended.

    Are you both on London reserve list too?

    Keeping hope alive here lol

    I got a provisional offer on 13/05/16 and got a message yesterday asking me to complete the health declaration but the health declaration form wasn't on my account. I contacted the person I was asked to send the form to and told them it wasn't on my account and now my form has been added today.
    So it may be that it should have been added to everyone's account (provisional offers and reserve list) but only got added to some. And now they've realised and added it to everyone's? I'm just guessing.

    Got my provisional offer email for Nottingham today. I also got a phone call shortly afterwards offering me a position in London, which I hadn't even applied for! Very strange, but I turned the London one down obviously

    Hi,

    I had the provisional offer for London on the portal. 2 days ago I had a call saying that I had been allocated to North London and they sent me an email to confirm whether I accept or decline the position. I accepted. Now waiting to hear of a start date but not sure if checks have been completed already. Is anyone in a similar situation?

    21 and below? I scored 21 exactly and really feel like i don't have a chance getting off the reserve list.

    I got a call this morning. They told me my location and I asked about the checks and the guy told me they can take up to 8 weeks. He said it might be quicker because they're doing them rather quickly.

    I had a call this morning too. I was told my location - but they told me they're giving some people 'Conditional offers' - which means you start before your checks are completed. There's obviously a minor risk involved if you have any kind of faulty background, but you don't have to accept the offer, you can wait for the checks to be completed.

    It would involve having limited working access though, but does mean you can complete your training while the checks are ongoing.

    Happy happy good luck to everyone else, I'm starting in June!
