I have my call to discuss my start date next week. However, I'm confused by the emails as the original had Zoom instructions but then it said to ignore that part. Once I'd booked I had another email saying it would be via Zoom. My question is....is it a phone call or Zoom call when discussing start dates?

Tia- Regarding start dates ,they just phoned me one evening and then had a quick talk about start dates and training dates. I then received an email afterwards confirming what was said on the phone. I then had to accept the formal offer, on the email.
I’m not sure why a zoom call would be needed?...

Londonlad81 - Thank you for your reply. In my original email it was described as a "video interview" and had information attached regarding wearing clothes that I would wear to a face to face interview. It later said to ignore the information, but subsequent emails have mentioned video too via Skype. 🤔
