How long does it take to get started? We have a rigorous approach to ensure we recruit the correct people, so having offered you a post there are some checks that we go through. These usually take about 4-6 weeks. Firstly, when submitting your application form, you’ll have given us the contact details of your referees and so we’ll contact them. When you come to meet us for the first time at the interview, you’ll being ID with you that proves you have the Right to Work in the UK. Whilst you’re with us for interview, we’ll also check together that everything is in place for a health check and a Protection of Vulnerable Groups check. Once these checks are complete, we’ll invite you to start induction with us.
