Congratulations, all good then.
It’s too bad that stupidity isn’t painful. Ignorance is one thing, but our society thrives increasingly on stupidity

Start of vetting to the call 17 weeks 2 days.

That means you are now in vetting. Roughly 8 weeks but known to be a lot longer at times.

I think that means that your vetting has been completed and sent to A & C for decision on the outcome of the vetting. If they need further info, it will be sent back to the vetting team...If I'm correct they can send it back 3 times before they make the final decision...
So you are very close to completion I think... :slbg: :slcl:

Mercedes, once Vetting started, it had the "pre-employment checks are being being carried out" message, then it changed to "we will contact you shortly to advise you of the next step" - I got the call a few days after that.

It will be as you wont be at your establishment for 3 months. Your pay will be the same as everyone elses at the poelt course.
