    Nope I haven't yet but I'm guessing we will hear back by this week hopefully! Did you tell them you could start immediately or did you need a notice period?
    They didn't ask me about notice period, but since I'm currently employed I think they'd assume I have a notice period. What did u tell them?
    I haven't even received my DBS yet! They emailed me yesterday saying that I had to email a "missing document" so they could proceed. I did that today so now fingers crossed.
    If the "big start date" is 5th Dec they should contact us soon. Let's hope!

    I've just graduated so I said immediately, ah no way! On the bright side DBS only takes a day for it to be completed and they'll probably speed you through the rest of the process. Its so annoying as I had the chance to take on some temp job around September/October but didn't as I assumed I would have started this by now. Its getting so annoying now, anyone got a number that I can get through to

    That makes me feel a lot better. That makes sense maybe that's why we haven't been contacted. Yeah you're right we just gotta sit tight, I suppose that's all we can do!
    Seems like Manchester aren't in any rush. I sent dbs off over 4 weeks ago for O role and haven't heard anything yet.

    News I heard today. Internal issues that I won't go into detail about, but there's no guarantee people with provisional offers will be receiving job offers at the moment.

    We have a handful of people starting in November. Non scheduled in December yet.
    Disclaimer: I don't get the whole story. Just little bits. Take with a pinch of salt.
    Zyro, are you talking about a specific location or generally as I know few people that already got start date for December in London?

    As far as im aware generally across HMRC. Anyone with a formal offer should be fine. Those with provisional offers could be waiting a while.

    As per before, take with a pinch of salt. I only overheard limited amounts.

    Hey there Congly....I just had to join the conversation....did they email you out of the blue for this missing document, or was it responding to you.

    Also was this missing document something additional or something they misplaced.... eager to know as nothing has progressed on my side and so It may clear the mist.

    Good luck as some have mentioned this early Christmas present!

    Hey Zyro; you probably sent pulses racing on here! From what you have gathered is there any real risk that offers will be removed as their simply isnt the need etc/

    I'd be ****ing furious if this is the case having since turned down job offers after this

    Pretty hard to "take with a pinch of salt" after hearing that! I'm absolutely appalled with the lack of communication from CSR to be honest.

    They should have clearly stated that the process will take approximately 3 months at least from receiving the provisional offer. I've had to take on part time work in the mean time, which means I'm struggle for money massively. But I also don't want to mess an organisation around by starting a proper full time job in the mean time.

    They've put people into such a **** situation, honestly. Feel like I'm never going to get the job, and it was all some elaborate scam.

    Too many people are getting confused.... if you've been made a provisional offer of employment and you've passed your pre employment checks, then you are made a formal offer. It's black and white, the provisional offer is subject to checks and once they're completed that's it. Everyone should receive an offer soon.

    Haven't had my checks back yet. Apparently still waiting on my DBS even though it's been well over a month. This is stressing me out so much, I feel like they genuinely don't factor in the fact that some of us don't currently have a secure job and steady income.

    It's such a frustrating feeling isn't it, waiting every day for that email.

    The thing is, my friend who applied for the same role and location as me received her DBS, and was informed that her checks were complete last week. Although she actually filled in her DBS I information a little later than I did. There seems to be no method to it at all.

    Its so annoying! Every phone call or email I get gets my hopes up! Ive seen on the TPS thread that people have only been asked for their DBS two weeks ago and already received formal offers!
    I've just sent an email to the guy who asked me to bring my documents in, no one else seems to want to give any answers.
