Hi all,Just seeing whether anyone else is in the same boat as me and whether they have heard back? I applied for the above role in December. I received my conditional job in March and was allocated to a role in DEFRA , subject to passing the pre employment checks. I passed these checks at the end of April and was told that someone would be in touch with me soon to discuss my role and start date. 3 months on and I still have no news on when/if I will start, aside from a few ambiguous emails saying I will hear ‘very shortly’ or ‘soon’. And also that they are considering the impacts of article 50 extension... reassuring. Anyone else in the same situation?

Hey, this is a late reply but I'm in exactly the same boat! Still waiting- I understand Brexit has meant uncertainty, but still this is a bit nuts. Have you heard anything else?

Hi Ark. yeh it’s so annoying! I passed all my pre employment checks in April and have chased them since but have just received generic emails saying I will hear soon and that article 50 extension has delayed things. Driving me crazy.
Are you waiting on a role in London or bristol?

Hi guys. I applied just before the deadline and had been waiting for an interview slot. There weren't any when I checked earlier, but there is one available now for Monday in Bristol. Unfortunately it is too short notice and I know I won't be able to get the day off work. Any idea if there will be more interview slots any time soon?

Hi Bobby R, probably worth emailing to check when they're looking the release the next interviews, they're pretty good at replying quickly. It does seem like very short notice so I wouldn't worry, sure there will be more slots!
