I'm filling out all my stuff too. I've had to email clarification as i've been a fulltime carer for a family member the last decade so don't have any up to date employment references. Hope there is a way round this.

Hey all. Did anyone filling out the pre-employment checks notice that there was no end date option for each past role? I've emailed them to ask as I had a few gaps in-between and so it looks like I've been in some roles longer than I actually have! :/

Yes hope so Assuming your position is also an apprentice position. Do you know if they're permanent roles? I'm really hoping so!

Hi! Yeah I thought that was strange as well but I just filled it in as they asked and thought, well they'll get back to me if they need more information!

Does anyone know how much travel there is likely to be in the role? From the advert, it seems to suggest there can be lots of travel or not much and there's not much else online from what I've read. Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks :-)

The amount of travel can be quite mixed, to be honest. I’ve been with Surge 5 years and I’ve travelled away probably for about 18 months of that. You come home on weekends, and all travel/expenses are paid for you.

I can't wait! The comfort too of now knowing that if for any reason I fail the CS check I'll still stay with the department has taken away so much stress! (just stressing about poor credit history) I'm just waiting on one reference to be checked now, fingers crossed they give a start date soon as I'm really unhappy with my current job

Hi there! Wow, 6 months is a long time! Hopefully we get an opportunity to work abroad.

That's good it's happening so quickly. Wonder when we'll start, I don't think mine's have been contacted yet so fingers crossed I'm all okay haha :-)

Yeah mine hasn't started yet as far as I can see. I didn't complete the details till Thursday afternoon as was waiting on clarification on what to put for a certain question. I did get a phone call Thursday night from someone within SRRT asking me to make sure I completed the information ASAP. So it does appear they are trying to expedite the process.

I got a provisional offer for the Edinburgh office! Did anyone else get sent a weird email? My email included a document with all the names of the people who have been offered the position in Edinburgh.... And no formal 'offer letter' as such. I am quite confused.

Does anyone have any info on the potential start date + home working/office working situation for Edinburgh?
Congrats!!! Thats weird though having the names of all the people offered, but its 10 names that you've seen so far on the list i assume? Coz they only looking for 10 right?? Or are they still on the search for the remaining ones...

Anyways, When did you also get your offer??? Im so glad!!! we asked them for start dates but they just ignored us haha but i think personally its gonna be next year!

Hey everyone I'm now on the very last stage. All my references have been returned and accepted and I'm now just waiting for the CRB check. I think they'll want people to start ASAP with now only doing the full SC check once we're in the roles

Does anyone have an email for recruitment in Edinburgh?

I'm wondering if we need to send in a disclosure check. I just received one after waiting a month for it, and wondered if I should send them it to speed up the process
