    Thank you! Huge commiserations to everyone who had different news - I think it's brutal that they kept us all waiting for such a long time.

    I honestly have no idea what I'll be doing. I haven't even had an email, just the portal update (classic CSR from what I can tell so far). I will post as soon as I hear!

    Thank you! V gracious of you - I would probably want to snap my head off at this point if I were you.

    I've had an email from them - just a request for DBS stuff but no more info. My first foray into the inner workings of CSR, here we go!

    Yes definitely! Although I am hoping for an October start date as I'm doing a master's so I'll be working on my dissertation all summer. I hope they introduce us all

    Congratulations! I asked in mine and they said start dates will depend on the candidate and the team they are joining. So should be flexible I think!

    Oh that's good to hear, would you agree best thing to do would be to just follow all the pre-employment checks and see what start dates they give and then take it from there? because I'm not sure..

    Yeah I'm just going to go through the motions for now. Usually companies ask about notice periods and availability when they make a formal offer, so I expect they will do that if we pass all the checks.

    When I asked if there was a set start date they said no, but probably autumn. Sounds like other people were told July so I don't think there is anything set in stone

    Hi all, does anyone know exactly how many references we need to provide? The online form doesn't seem to specify. Also, does anyone know which location they've been placed in yet? I've been trying to find out, and I wondered if anyone else has had any more luck. Thanks!

    Yeah it wasn't clear, I ended up giving two references, one academic and a close friend, and they don't seem to be responding to my emails either. Would it be worth calling?

    Just thought I'd update, I called today and they said 2 references should be fine because it didn't specify. But I would still recommend calling them yourself just in case, I used the number from the email we got about degree certificates.

    What degree certificates email? When was it sent?

    Can I be nosy and ask what everyone is currently doing? Are you finishing your undergraduates/masters degrees or already working?

    That seems reasonable. I tried calling about locations and I was given about three different numbers to call with no one being able to give any information. I suppose all will become clear once they've processed everything. Thanks for the updates everyone!

    Hi guys,

    At what stage were you asked for referee details? I completed the next stage and at no point was I asked for references.

    Also, can I get the contact number?

    Thanks in advance.
