Public sector pre employment service background checks Watch
I've been offered a graduate role within a popular national public service organisation (not civil service but very similar). They sent an offer email around December time and said the contract will take a 'few weeks' to process.
It's now Feb, and I'm still waiting.
Anyone else experienced these long waiting times? I'm guess they are doing a background check etc. but that's not stopping me from worrying.
Annoying thing is that I also turned down other roles for this one role, which is taking aaaages to send the contract.
What checks did they undertake ? References / dbs ? Have you emailed them r.e the delay?Could it be perhaps they are waiting on giving you a start date? Took 6 weeks from interview to get into my previous public sector role . These things can take time try not to worry
