Re: Openreach recruitment 8

I start on the 5th too. Hr lady said "the travel team" will be in touch about a week before we go. Also got a Ready to Start email with hiring manager details stating that they would be in touch about a week before to finalise things....just have to be patient i suppose. Feels a bit surreal, ..it's like being in limbo! Can't wait to leave my current job.

Last year they sent all the uniform by courier a month beforehand,obviously theyve changed this so u will be picking all ur uniform up on day 1.Take a large suitcase for this as there is loads.2 coats,waterproof bottoms,5 t-shirts,2 jumpers,2 trousers,2 pairs of boots,helmet and other ppe,then u will have ur laptop bag and laptop to carry.unless u are fvr u will have to travel on a coach to get ur van on the friday so u all have to sling ur gear into a van that goes to magna park,so dont leave ur gear in the box it will come in as it will be easier to locate when u get there.Smart/casual will be fine for the monday then all u need is clothes for the night times.Its all powerpoint presentations on week 1 really,u dont need to take anything apart from ur learning folder and laptop which will be given to u on day 1.And you will think that it looks like no contact has been made for ages but they literally leave everything until near enough a week before u go as its easier for them so ir train tickets and that will all be sorted about a week before

Delivery would be much easier and do a swap on the day as likely the most thing is going to be trousers. Was it just a case of getting the keys and heading back home on the friday? Does it have full in it haha

I start on the 12th March and I am still waiting on my crb certificate. It was supposedly sent on the 9th but it still has not turned up. I have a feeling it's not even been posted yet. It is the last thing I need to get to BT then I am all done. It is just annoying that it's not here yet.
