I went for an interview last week at a big organisation which went well. The next day I got a call from HR stating they would like to offer me the position. I was so happy, because I've been out of work for some time and I really wanted the role.
On the call they asked me if I was happy with the salary, and asked about the start date which will be confirmed after the pre employment checks as it depended on how long it would take.. They sent me a written offer email with the role, salary, contract type and start date to be confirmed. She then said she will raise the contract, but it's been almost a week and haven't heard anything back.
She did said say she was out of office for a few days... However, I'm starting to get a bit worried about this. I just wanted to know if it usually takes this long to receive the job contract? Or would there be something else wrong? I know they are probably busy with work but surely it won't take long to send a contract/start date?
I don't know! I am relatively new to the work force as a graduate so any advice would be appreciated.
