Amazing news well done Mitch Bird I’m really chuffed to bits for you, I’m on holiday the end of sept that’s why I got such a late start I wish I’d cancelled my holiday now. 😂

Hi guys,

Got all excited as my portal updated to ‘we will be in touch soon to let you know the next stage of recruitment’ - so I thought my vetting was done dusted and that id be booking ‘the’ call. But since then, it’s not changed and I just called the recruitment centre for an update and they said they couldn’t see any changes, they couldn’t tell me even if vetting was complete yet :(

Hopingggggg to be done and get the call next week so I can give my notice in at work and being to get excited about it all!!

Thanks so much Mrs Iron ore and Virgo, I haven’t booked any holidays just in case and my kids are older so I thought just go for it. I was hoping to have a week of to myself first but you can’t have everything. I’ve not had my contract yet but I’ve had emails from my prison.
