    There seems to be a number of threads where we are all trawling through looking for updates on the status of applications etc! How about we all just post here instead for the Belfast posts.

    I will start with all the info I have. I got a provisional offer for Belfast as an Officer in Individual and Small Business Compliance on the 12th of May. I filled everything in asap and sent it all off. I have heard nothing since. I have contacted the DBS who STILL haven't recieved an application for me and I have emailed every email address I can get hold of to get an update. Either no response or a simple "We are processing your application" email back.

    Sigh.

    Can't wait to get started. I like my current job but I am really looking forward to a new challenge and a higher salary! I have also applied for the new trawl for HO. Did a lot better on my test this time (92% compared to 79% the last time!) so here's hoping I do better in the interview!!

    I've emailed them (cc'ed in several CS related addresses) politely asking what's going on and when are they expecting to wrap this up. The "20 working days" deadline has long been and gone. I have a feeling Belfast isnt in too much of a hurry.

    This is how they replied to my email asking when they are expecting to give start dates:

    Good afternoon

    I am sorry we cannot give you any other information until your checks have cleared.

    Regards

    Didn't even bother to sign it off. So helpful!

    Have you heard anything yet? I got my checks passed yesterday and I am delighted.
    I have an offer for an O post in Belfast.
    I am just waiting for a start date now and hopefully it won't be too long to wait 😊.

    I had to leave in certificates again to custom house square. Unfortunately my GCSE certs were damaged so I have had to apply to have them sent out again. Looks like I am in for a bit of a wait and I hope recruitment don't withdraw my offer because of this! I would go mad.

    Hmm odd. Although I don't think consistency had exactly been at the top of their list of priorities in this campaign**

    Do you know which department you're in? My provisional offer said individual and small business compliance. *
