    Thank you love. If anything you guys have been wonderfully supportive and I hope everyone that has engaged on here gets what they are after. It's only us know the pain of this recruitment process and having your phone glued to your hand all day everyday 😊

    Feel so annoyed and confused, my references were contacted last week and had until 26th but one of my references has only just sent it back. HMRC haven't requested another reference and my application is now in 044R Main Pool, do you think HMRC will ask me for another reference?

    My first ref was sent back last week, then the fiasco with the other one was completed on Monday morning, my DBS has been dispatched so I don't know what's holding it up...

    Manpower have made a total mess of this recruiting process, everyone seems to be at different stages and they haven't stuck to the time scale at all, hopefully when we finally get a start date and finally start work HMRC won't be this bad

    I just don't understand this process, they have everything they need DBS refs forms all sorted, some well most people's portal says main pool, mine said that then went straight back to PEC PROCESS, I'm starting to get a little annoyed at how long all this has taken. I understand there's a lot of applications and that but coming upto 4 months is a LONG time. I'm in the mind to call them or email them for a update soon my whole life is on hold in terms of holidays till I get a start date.

    I left my other job a week ago due to different circumstance and have been offered other jobs/interviews but have turned them down as it is just a start date I'm waiting for now and don't want to let other people down and go through different recruitment processes over and over again to say I don't want the job, it's so frustrating waiting as I have nothing to do at the minute haha (my own fault really for leaving my old work but couldn't stay there any longer) it will feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders when I get a start date but at the minute it's just a waiting game. Some people seem to have only waited a few weeks for their start date whereas others have waited a month or so

    I know, a day feels like a month. They have everything they need from me now so it's a waiting game for a email or a phone call, where did you apply for?
