    I've had an email of a set back for East Kilbride. As my DBS isn't complete and they don't have my certificate they can't discuss a formal offer until they get that. They did say everything else I've provided has been passed. So I want to know how long can I expect to wait now? I sent my DBS last Tuesday. So it's now been 8 days. Do you still think I'd be able to get a formal offer by Friday?

    It took less than 24 hours for mine and I'm in Scotland. You'll be fine. It's not your error I'm sure. Keep your chin up. I am also waiting for EK and heard nada since last Tuesday. I'll let you know if I hear anything

    My DBS says it was dispatched on the 28/03 so does that mean the recruitment team have it or does it mean I have to wait till I receive it?

    Did you email them to find that info out or did they contact you? Am sure many of the things holding people's formal offers up is these DBS forms.
