    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.
    Thanks . I didnt see anywhere to explain either but i put ny address in Spain

    Just on the DBS application forms (I've done several over the years). I'd just email them again on the original contact form to explain.

    No. I read elsewhere on these threads that they are advised if there's something on your DBS certificate and that's when you'd need to disclose what it is to them. If it's clear, no further action is required.

    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.
    You can send off for a "certificado de antecedentes" from the Justice Dept in Madrid. It only costs about €3 or €4 and takes about a week to come.

    I'm waiting to hear from Manpower about CSR/1320/16, but I've been for the ID verification at Liverpool today (for CSR/2066/15 campaign) and they said they'd seen 30 of us today. When I asked how soon to expect a formal offer, the guy basically said that even when the pre-employment checks are done, don't expect a formal offer right away....

    I have some news to update, though I will state ahead to NOT GET YOUR HOPES UP. I have it that we were meant to receive 20 to 25 new starters from a senior member of training for Nov, but haven't been supplied names.

    I would assume the new recruitment was meant to be more efficientand quicker than previously, but evidently that was not the case.

    Yep, maybe they're doing it differently for you because they've had a nightmare.

    I recently sent an email to manpower basically saying that I don't understand why they were doing the checks for me as I'm in Civil service. First they replied ...Hmrc hav advised us that we need to do checks. So I replied back stating that as per their guidance they should not be conducting these checks as I'm already an employee. Then I got a reply from them stating that they had to treat me as an external candidate because I did not hold the correct level of security clearance for the role. I've never heard so much bs ever lol....this role requires a standard check which I've had done with Hmrc lol. Personally I don't think manpower have a clue.

    Basically don't bank on starting by a particular date unless your formal offer has come through, it's a long, very long waiting game so get used to it!

    Which email address did you use?

    I've emailed them 3 times (!) with no response other than the automated reply. I've not had to provide any onboarding information, and the 'Next Stage' link on the job page for CSR/1320/16 doesn't work, it just takes me straight back to the 'Application Centre'. I have been asked for no information whatsoever.

    I'm also currently a Civil Servant, but applied through CSR/1320/16 due to time constraints, and not having the time to write 4 competencies for the internal application.
