    The process is a bit awkward because you cant hand in your notice or at least inform your current employer that you may be leaving because its not guaranteed unless sc and employment checks are successful. So basically your current employer will find out by hmpo contacting them before you can tell them and thats not a nice way of them finding out. Not sure of how to break it down to them lol. Anyone in a similar situation?
    I agree with you but in my case, once the security checks was cleared, 2 days after I got another email coming from the business unit where I will be based (London) to arrange dates to start, she had several dates in feb and March, what I did I picked a date in March because I need to give 4 weeks notice, from the moment I confirmed a starting date I handled my notice

    Hi

    Yes that sounds good. A big relief lol. I guess they have ways of finding out your employment history.
    This can neither be confirmed or denied :rolleyes:

    They don't seem to be in any great rush to let us know. Their communication to different applicants is not at all consistent.

    Have you heard anything yet?

    Only to say that we should know by the 06th February. Other than that, nothing.

    How about you ?

    Hi guys

    To everyone who has successfully passed the pre-employment checks, how long did the process take? I'm trying to work out an average time which will hopefully give me a rough idea of how long I can expect to wait.

    Still waiting...
    Slightly hopeful seeing as last time I was told I hadn't got through the very next day after the interviews being completed. Not long to suffer now!

    Hi Nokia8210,
    Did you email CSR regarding confirmation of the 3 forms received ? I didn't get any acknowledgement that they had got my forms, so emailed them and no reply since . Do CSR actually reply to candidates' queries?

    Hi Paulas

    Like you I did not receive acknowledgement and going by what I have read above, I do not think anyone did. I did not contact them again. It's seems like they do not reply to any candidates and that might be down to security reasons.

    Just a bit mean that having to wait this long and they could possibly say " Sorry but you have been unsuccessful ". Hopefully that will not be the case.

    Hope not. A lot of people will have applied for more than one job and I am sure cos of length of time its taken people will have found other jobs, lost interest etc. It is 7 weeks now since I had my conditional offer so it is a very long drawn out process.

    Really ? So say they come back to us by Friday as they have said, and give us conditional offers. Does that mean it could be around April / May time that would be the start date ?

    After your conditional offer you have to have security clearance and employment history checks. They send you forms to fill in first then after that an online link for security clearance forms so depends how fast they move. From what I have read my checks have been completed pretty quickly!!!

    no not yet but in interview did say is a lengthy process so am not expecting to start till at least march/april anyway.


    Am liverpool

    a thought how quick the security clearance came back would of heard back from pre employment checks by now but maybe they are waiting till they offer everyone the job so can finalise the different start dates on offer
