Moving things forward smoothly
Continued contact with your new employer and recruitment consultant is the best way of ensuring everything goes to plan in the run up to your first day in your new role.
Arrangements for Starting
A week or two before starting it is worth reconfirming the day, time and location for your first day, and who it is you will be meeting.
Double check on arrangements for the collection of any items on or before start date such as company car, mobile phone etc. This may be best arranged with Human Resource/Personnel Department rather than your line manager.
Letting People Know
Ask for your details to be deleted from any agencies, or job boards you have used to avoid receiving embarrassing phone calls in your first few weeks!
