    No and anyway you are unlikely to get through today as most departments finish early on a Friday. Probably have to wait until Monday

    Be careful about deferring start dates as if you wait too long your employment checks evidence bank statements etc will expire and you will need your pre-employment checks redone
    It took just under 5 weeks after I resubmitted my documents originally provided at interview over a year go to be advised my pre-employment checks were completed.

    At this rate, if that's true, I may have to go through the pre-employment checks again, not through deferment but from their own delay.

    Surely if they complete the pre checks, they must do so with some sort of start date envisaged?

    Glasgow.

    I've just tried the 0300 123 1896 number. They just direct me to the E&[email protected] .gsi.gov.uk e-mail address. So not very helpful.

    Don't think this is true as surely the status in the jobs portal would just remain as 'formal offer' or just revert back to 'pre-employment checks completed'.

    Dress code is pretty damn lax for my office. I personally like to dress smart casual, but a lot of people just wear jeans and t-shirts.

    From what I have seen, there's not much of a dress code - a lot of people come in to work in jeans most days so as long as your not wearing anything too silly you'll be fine, no need to go out and buy yourself a suit really!

    For those asking about dress codes: This should be pretty obvious but wear something formal (i.e. suit) for at least the first day.

    In Croydon most Os and HOs wear casual dress (i.e. jeans and shirts) unless you're visiting taxpayers.

    HO 1320/16 London

    After hearing nothing for weeks, I received an email from CSR yesterday stating that my pre-employment checks are complete. About 10 minutes later I received a formal offer to start 14th December in Croydon. (I only put down Stratford as my preferred location) I've accepted but need to negotiate start date.

    So, good news guys! Offers are still going out randomly....

    Did anyone else receive an offer yesterday?

    Same as me but i start on 28th November. i guess you have to accept the offer and then see if you can change with manager afterwards.

    I'm from the Feb 2016 pool where I chose Stratford. No start date yet. I highly doubt they will allow you to change location once you start. But you never know

    It's unlikely anyone will be able to move to Stratford after they've been placed in Croydon as Stratford is getting pretty much filled to capacity now.
