    I have no clue either, however today I received an email telling me my security check has been cleared so hopefully I'll receive more info soon.
    I haven't had a security check yet either 😕
    Hopefully we both get info soon!

    Yeah hopefully, if I receive any info now that my security check is cleared I'll post it on here as it's probably just a matter of waiting for that to go through.

    I still don't know my start date! So annoying and they don't respond to my emails. Anyone else in the same situation?

    Hi everyone!

    I have just been offered a position in the department of energy and climate change in London as a business apprenticeship (originally applied for finance). I am so excited as I was on the reserve list but I wanted to know what to expect now with the pre-employment checks. Also I may need to change my references, has anyone done this? Are they ok about it?
    Does anyone know how I tell them about a change of address as I can no longer log into my account?
    Thanks for your help

    Did anyone else who was on the reserve list who was told that there were more positions in November now get an email from Mr Todorovic today? (If that makes sense)
    I got this email too, I replied saying I would like to be "considered" and they then emailed saying "how the process for posting will move forward" and that they would try to be in touch by the end of September, just wondering if you have heard anything further to this?

    I phoned yesterday to ask for an update and she said that they are starting to work out placements for people on the reserve list. Most postings will be done next week and she told me to phone back towards the end of next week if I still haven't heard anything by then
