    Does anyone actually know what the pre employment checks involve? I work for the Home Office and wrongly assumed that my checks would be completed relatively quickly. I received a call 2 weeks ago with my location but nothing since.

    I thought you bypassed the checks if you already work in the Civil Service as we have already been through checks. I was told not to bother bringing in the security forms to interview, only external candidates.

    I'm Home Office and I had to provide all the information for character checks etc at interview. I'm both CTC and SC cleared and they required just DBS for this role therefore I'm not sure whether or not you bypass the checks or if they contact your HR department and obtain your level of clearance and they ascertain if another check is required then. O was made a provisional offer on 11th May and a formal on 6th June so despite only having clearance upgraded from CTC to SC in February and being under no performance or attendance managment, checks took 3 weeks, but admittedly this is still less than the 20 working days for DBS... Technically, offers should only be made once checks have been completed (unless under extreme circumstances). I know for our building, if your clearance hasn't been completed by your start date, you're not allowed to come in lol. If you have received a formal offer, given a start date and accepted this start date then you should hear from your line manager at the office you've been assigned to approximately a week before your agreed start date.

    I have CTC so not sure what the delay is. Although I am on an attendance management stage 1 warning. Perhaps that has something to do with it.

    I just want a formal offer so I can hand in my notice. I really hope they complete the checks soon as all this waiting is becoming unbearable.

    About 11 months I believe because I had my 3 month meeting back in October.

    That's what the salary will be in Sept after the payrise, which is backdated to July.

    Will we also get the payrise or will we only get the amount advertised. Cos I saw somewhere that we would have to be working by 30th June to get the payrise. Do you have any info?
