Afternoon. It's now 5 months and counting until my start date at BRNC (June 4th). I have submitted everything necessary (vaccination records, discharge book etc etc) and have been told to standby for "joining instructions closer to the time". This is literally all I have been told. No confirmed offer of employment, no more guidance than that. I know that 5 months is a long time but considering my application has taken 14 months to date I'd like to have a bit more info to put my mind at rest, without pestering recruitment. Does anyone know how long joining instructions take to come through? Do the RFA issue confirmed offers of employment so that I can be sure that this is definitely what I'll be doing in 5 months time?
