It means if a job comes up they will offer it to somebody on the reserve list.

Just a quick update, got an email about 18:30 today
'Your pre-employment checks have been satisfactorily completed.
The vacancy holder will contact you shortly to agree a start date and/or discuss the next steps.' Phew finally :P Good Luck to everyone

For the Civil Service, that's actually quite quick!

Hey everyone. Sorry to start this thread back up. I interviewed last week for the Civil Service and was just wondering what the turnaround time from Interview to feedback/decision was for everyone?

It took 4 weeks to the day for me to get an offer after interview.


I have a question regarding the checks. I recently received a provisional offer with a start date (I was asked on the phone to choose between one of two dates) and it's only 3 weeks away. Is there any way they'll actually be able to fulfill this? I ask because I am coming from abroad so it's not just hopping on a train!

Additionally, it says if I have lived abroad for more than six months in the last five years, I need to provide criminal background checks of that. I did a study abroad year during my undergraduate and I don't even know where to start on getting documents in that regard. Has anyone got any experience of applying for background checks from abroad? In practice is it sought out?

You need to contact the embassy (check for information on their website), or if you can the police/tribunal in the country you studied abroad, to request a police check form.https://www.britishcouncil.org/sites..._directory.xls

If you haven't passed (or started the process of applying for) BPSS yet, and it's 3 weeks away, there's absolutely no way you'll make that date especially if you have to get a criminal record statement from a foreign country.

Hey everyone. My pre-employment checks have come back as successfully completed and I've agreed a start date with the HR rep, so just awaiting my employment contract. HR says it could take a few weeks until I have the employment contract - is this normal and how long did this take for you? Thanks all!

Not going to be what you want to hear, but most of the people I worked with last year started pre employment contract, with my boss having been there for 3 years without one! They’re not fast by any means

Initially, last employer within 3 years and then 1 character. But then received email week or so after asking for two character. I contacted them today as thought my 20 days up tomorrow but said they are waiting for heath check and DBS (although I already had one and supplied number). She said they are both dealt with with outside agencies so out of their control. I'm so eager to know as the job requires me to move and rent and viewed a lovely property I want to secure!
I've received a conditional job offer from the HMRC.
The form asks for "my employer referee" and permission to contact them. Should that be my current employer or could that be my previous employer (within three years)?
