    Thanks!

    Definitely not! I am so excited too!

    Quick question - the Health Declaration asks for a Candidate Ref, where do I find this?

    I am also so excited! I have been trying to find everything I can to read on hidden economy...

    I also wondered that, and put the reference number on the emails - glad someone else did that!

    Again, they seem to be on top of getting forms out to us quickly- do you think we will start in April as planned? I'm getting antsy about handing in my notice!

    Handing in my notice - the dream is fast approaching haha Hopefully we will start in April as planned, as everything has been on time so far!

    What all did you find on the hidden economy?

    Thank you, I've put the job reference too, I'm sure that will be enough.

    They do seem on the ball with the checks, fingers crossed we get done and get a start date sooner than we thought! :crossedf:

    Ha, not a lot. I re-read the job advert a few times, the testimonials they supplied and then a few news reports Google provided me with! I also found a few firms that help people when the HET start investigating them...

    I wonder if we'll all be training together. Are you Belfast bwatters? Where are you Dajolta?

    I'm Leeds! So pretty far away from you all. In our interview they mentioned residential stays while training. I think they said Birmingham, so potentially there's a central training place where people go? I'm not too sure. Would be nice to meet everyone doing the same job!
