    Thank you. That's reassuring. I suppose if they gave me an indication as to how long I wouldn't mind. But I called them a couple of times and noone knows anything. One of my personal references have been contacted yesterday so hopefully not long left.

    I have had a email from them telling me they have not had a reply from my employer about my reference, I spoke to my employer and they told me they had sent the reference reply a week ago and even showed me the sent email time and date. I emailed the DWP yesterday to tell them this and have not had a reply yet. I am very worried this whole situation makes me feel so stressed. They have no idea what is going on. They have asked me for my personal reference for the third time now. I feel like I am going to miss out on this job because of all of this. Any one else having problems?

    I know, I'm in a similar situation. I have spoken to Disclosure Scotland who already posted my certificate on Monday sonthat should be with them. My references all responded last week, yet I was told today that they are still awaiting the outcomes of the checks. Is there a contact number for the people doing the checks? I emailed them yesterday, however did not receive any response.
