    Yesterday, I received an email saying PECs in order, will receive a start date soon. This email is identical to the one I received on 30 March. Only
    the date is different. So 45 days on and no start date!!!!!!!!! Fingers crossed I will receive in the next few days.

    I believe the starting wage was £18,593, which all new, non-civil service, starters would be on. The upper limit was £20,292, but I envision this was for people transferring from within the civil service

    I have begun my training in dm and yes it's ideal time for me too. I'm guessing it will be the same times for you. When do you start training?

    You don't get an email advising they are in order. Most of us had to chase for that info. It took 1 month for me to get a start date after continuous chasing.
