    I just received an email asking for health form and Dbs. However they have not asked for references?
    Does anyone know how far back the Dbs checks go?

    Has anyone received their DBS certificate for O grad role in London? I got my DBS form last week and assumed it would be progressing and rang DBS to be told that they haven't got an application under my name. Has anyone else whose completed their DBS form rang DBS to check if they've got an application under you name yet? Id recommend you check with them to see if there's any progress. Thats a week wasted now!

    I got my certificate 3 weeks ago and even a Civil Service Pension pack last Saturday, but I have had no contact regarding any start date.

    You have to declare all convictions. Hmrc have an exception as far as 'spent' convictions are concerned.

    I think a November start date is really pushing it at this point. If you only had one or two people starting then yeah you can get them in at pretty short notice. When you have hundreds starting it's a logistical nightmare for everyone involved, and everyone needs a long run-up to it. I know I've said it before on this thread, but I have to give MINIMUM 1 month's notice (ideally 6 weeks, if possible) and so assuming I got a formal offer and handed my notice in tomorrow, we'd be looking at mid-November at the very earliest. I went up to HMRC last week to hand in my forms / show ID etc for the background checks, and I would assume those take at least a couple of weeks under normal circumstances - looking at the experiences of those on this thread, these checks can take much longer. So I'm not holding my breath for a formal offer to come through this month.

    My theory is they wanted to get people started in November - I think that was the original plan, but I guess they're struggling with the numbers (the people I saw last week weren't HR, they were Ops, said they'd been drafted in to help HR out with this) and I reckon they're rethinking the start dates.

    I hope I'm right, as a start date early next year would be absolutely ideal for me. But time will tell, guess we all just have to sit tight and wait.

    I guess it depends on which campaign your on. Are you on 1321?

    I dont have any convictions but i lived in Spain from 2009 to 2013, so im worried that if they cant check for that period it will go against me.

    Ah right I see. Not sure it would go against you for DBS but they may just look for references because of that period of non-employment in the UK.

    1320 applicant. Manpower seem rather lacklustre and inefficient. Doesn't bode well for those part of the more recent recruitment process currently still at the sifting stage.

    I'm anticipating start dates toward the end of January, maybe even early February. These man are moving bookey bruv and fully messing with my plans 😡 Kmt

    I have a gap in employment for 1.5 years as I took some time off to travel. I just explained that on my DBS (you have to explain any gaps) so that will cover you and you don't need to worry.

    I have a similar gap, I dont recall any chance to explain this, especially with the DBS stage (so far)
    Basically I received the link in the Civil Service Portal (the next stage part when the form is filled) and filled out basic details plus sent the health declaration....however I dont recall this.....could you please tell me more? Is it at a more advanced stage you were allowed to explain this or was it for the stage explained above.
