    Yeah, I have a start date - the 27th March. It's all been confirmed & that's my induction day then I have 2 weeks training in Southport then my role is in Liverpool.
    My email wasn't from Manpower though it was from, what looks like, one of the team leaders at the passport office itself. She's even confirmed my shift pattern & which day off I would have when I work the Saturday.
    I hope you all hear soon & something gets sorted out for you!
    Hi Amy,

    I have had my start date confirmed today too - 27th March! Is your role PO1 or PO3? Same my training is at Southport, but they can reminburse the train costs which is good. I will be working 9.45-5.45 and have a Wednesday off when I work my Saturday.

    Will prob see you there!

    No they haven't replied at all.

    I have gone past anger and frustration, and now this experience is really starting to upset me.

    Nothing short of ridiculous you couldn't make it up. They are keeping all part timers waiting until they see what they have when everyone is through clearance but haven't even told you results of interview yet let alone commence clearance.
    I understand you feeling upset it was a very intense process requiring a lot of preparation and you should have had your result weeks ago. I hope you get through after the long wait.

    No. Well until I decided I had had enough so rang Manpower in Liverpool and was able to obtain a certain e-mail address, which was very quick in responding might I add. However, the response was no clearer. Bit of going round the houses and then coming straight back to square one. I spoke to someone at the job centre who said if they are anything like them, then the reason we wont have heard will more than likely be to do with money to recruit - like they are only able to take on so many per month etc. My other half said the same ( he used to work for the Home Office ). Also, the end of the tax year is fast approaching and that wont be helping matters.

    Wish this was like facebook where you could request friends haha. Don't really want to plaster the persons response on here.

    Have you sent the forms off again ? x

    Missfohal, I really hope you do get the job. I wouldn't want you to go through all of this and then a negative response at the end. It won't be nice but just hang in there.

    Any one starting London soon, or waiting for the security clearance?

    Yes, I am waiting for London. Attended interview on Oct 23rd. Got Security Clearance on Jan 13. Pre - employment checks completed only yesterday. ( My previous employer's reference email never reached them it seems . Had to do a bit of chasing myself to get it re send ). Not sure how much longer I would have to wait...
