Re: Do we bring our white goods?

Thanks Mrs F.
Did you bring your own car? You sound like you're talking from experience.

If so, would you go through the process again or is it more hassle than it's worth?

Police Checks - do I arrange before EOI?

Hi,
Is it a good idea to arrange police checks before submitting our EOI?
