yes they should ask you when you are free to start like two days after checks complete i think. Then i got my official contract exactly a week after i told them the date.

Great, thanks so much!
Has anyone else got their contracts yet? Just reviewing mine and all looks good but trying to figure out what my hourly pay will be haha. The annual salary for mine says £21,775, so i've done a basic calculation of 260 working days minus 25 days leave, which leaves 21,775/235 = £88 a day ish. Does that sound correct to anyone else? Thanks in advance.
You have 25 days leave???

thats amazing! they told me I can only have 6.5 days off hahaha. It was a hustle trying to explain to them why I need 5 days off for medical reasons.

Where did you apply if you don't mind me asking?

By 25 days leave I mean the 25 days stipulated in the contract, which is set out in an annual form. But given that this is 3 months thats divided by 4, so I get 5 days too - same as you! Sorry for the confusion. Just trying to figure out how they work out salary. I applied to Oxford, wbu?
How long did it take you both to get your contracts after the pre-employment checks were completed?

Anyone still waiting for their contracts?

Yes it’s been nearly 2 weeks now since the pre-employment checks were complete. Still waiting for the contract to come through. I’ve applied for London, what about you?

Also London - thanks for responding!
Hey! Just a question about vetting - checks were completed the other day but was wondering whether they tell you if they completed checks to BSPP or CTC level (for those who applied to RCJ)? Thanks!

No they did not say what level - just checks successfully completed. I received a Basic DBS document in the post. Still awaiting contract.

Thanks so much! Also, how long after checks were complete did you hear from your court? X

My checks were completed on 19th May and still have no idea of which court I am going to or received my contract/start date. I have phoned them a couple of times and I just have to wait. And you? Which stage are you at?

Oh my... 19th May??? That's acc mad. I finished my checks on Tuesday and gonna ring them now to check when my court's gonna contact me. The wait is painful but I hope it's almost over.

Yeah just phoned them up and they just said the bog standard 'we can't say when you'll hear from the vacancy manager'... so that's that.

So frustrating isn't it!
Hey - did you complete a CTC SQ questionnaire. I only completed mine around last week when they sent it? Worried now as I have not heard anything back or a contract.

Didn't complete a CTC SQ questionnaire but checks completed over a month ago. Worried too as still no sign of a contract.
