Ilford_or_Dubai - have you heard back yet from your potential employer?

I think i'm in a similar position, I accepted the conditional offer for a role in AD (after some negotiation of course ). I've been told my file is going through CID clearance (See my post on CID Clearance ???).. about 4 weeks have passed.. still waiting. The HR contact has no idea how long it will take.. The worst is waiting and not knowing..

Would be interesting to see where you are in the process and how long it takes.. reading through the post... you've been moving through the process faster then I have.. First contact in Feb 2011... Offered the role in June 2011.. Now Oct.. still waiting

Feb to Oct is a long time - how much time did you spend negotiating?

My status:

1) Contract signed with an agreed start date 15th Jan
2) HR person said she will apply the employment visa early dec as it has 60 days validity period to enter.
3) I've filled all the forms they require for the work visa to arrange and now serving my notice period in my current job..
4) what is CID clearence? - I will read your thread NOW!!

Good luck

Well, when I say negotiate. I went through an agency.. so did'nt have to be too diplomatic in my style. They offered the package, I simply replied I need to think over the numbers.. then later replied if they could improve on it.. the improved verbal offer came through within a few days.. but they had to change the grade of the job to match the numbers.. and so had to go through Senior / Director level approval which all in all took about 4 weeks for the formal conditional offer to come through. The offer was improved by approx 25% happy days!
