    When did you get your formal offer?

    I emailed chasing for a start date earlier this week and got the following response:

    "Unfortunately this campaign is taking longer than anticipated. As soon as we are in a position to progress we will contact you to arrange a start date."

    Absolute joke! I'm getting extremely impatient with the whole thing now!

    Checks for 1320/16 were meant to be completed within 20 days...not 2 months! You don't have to be Sherlock Holmes to release it's taking longer than anticipated...they just need to get it sorted!
    The evidence for your pre-employment checks are in danger of expiring. You may need to re-complete your checks soon

    I don't think date of docs matters if the checks are already completed Jamz. It's only for them to start the criminal record checks they need documents from within the last 3 months.

    I'd hope so, because otherwise myself and many, many others will be back to square one very soon.

    You're right. Once checks are completed that's it done.

    I wouldn't be so sure. The new Data Accuracy Act will require these things to be up to date

    Erm, there's no such Act.

    Maybe you are confusing this with the Data Protection Act? Even so, there's still nothing to worry about regarding the employment checks.

    If it was an issue then any internal employees would have been security-checked in this competition - but they weren't (except for memoryfish but he just seemed to have all the bad luck!)

    I agree. Don't make stuff up. This is depressing enough.

    Just waiting on a formal offer for Belfast / Lisburn. Pre employment checks complete and I deferred from the 12th December start date.

    When were you contacted about a start date of 12th?

    My checks were only completed last week and heard nothing since

    Efficiency assessments?! You really are full of **** ...as has been pointed out before. You just seem to posting whatever you think will cause panic and stress for your own petty amusement!
