Working days

Morning all.
Does anyone know what the working patterns are like in terms of days off? Do you get the same day off every week or does it chop and change?
Cheers

Re: Receiving a potential start date

A start date given before vetting has been done? That's the first time I've ever heard that on here..

Re: Referred For A Decision

I am starting to think they just make it up as they go along as I get told something different whenever I speak to them.

Re: Referred For A Decision

There is no straight answer to that Im affraid. Some have been on a merit list for the nearly a year before an offer and some for just a couple of weeks.

Re: Referred For A Decision

Ooo exciting stuff.. I had a call from private number and it was them.. I got excited to only find out my optima health check now needs updating so I need to do that before they can give me a start date 🤬
The amount of hoops Ive jumped through for this job is unreal.

Re: Trousers

I would suggest calling your establishment as they should have your record by now. They should be able to advise on what happens with uniform orders.
