Really paranoid about a job offer! I had an interview about 7 weeks ago.
About 4 weeks after the interview, i received an offer - great! Was told the company was offering me a position but I had to wait until a security clearance on me was complete before I could get my contract (police check if you like, which began aroud the time of the interview). I did get a written confirmation that I did get the job. Now I found out a few days ago that I am fully cleared on the security clearance but the recruitment agency cannot send me the contract until they receive the security clearance certificate from the company. Until then I cannot get my contract. Thats fair enough. But why is it taking so long to get the certificate over to the recruitment agency? I was told there were no problems etc. I really want to get into the company and get started in the new job but why is it taking so long? Any ideas?
