Still waiting for this bloody contract. After thinking it was just a formality once my checks were complete yesterday they asked for more. They wanted a photo of the back of my drivers licence (don't know why, i'm not applying to be a driver), and they needed me to fill in a new form that could have been sent to me 3 weeks ago!
It's very frustrating but should be all sorted. My consultant who found me the job still thinks i'll be working on Monday, but that would mean they have the facility to log in remotely, this wasn't available at my last place and they gave me two laptops to use.
