I’ve recently received an offer from PwC for September 2011. I feel so lucky to have been offered this position that I’m constantly thinking of ways where it could be taken away from me! One of which is the pre employment checks. I have just found two accidental mistakes s on my application form. Nothing major - a job I had on my GAP year I said finished in February instead of March 2007 and I said I started secondary school in 1998 rather than 2001 (no idea why). However I have heard horror stories about peoples offers being withdrawn for minor reasons.
I have already done an internship with them in the summer for which I had to sign a pre employment vetting form. So I think they have already done a background check on me. However, they sent me another one to sign in my recent contract.
Does this mean they will do another check?
I will be speaking to them in the next few days so I think it is wise to let them know about the mistakes.
