First you need to print off or your Arrivals pass (which is available at the end of your e-induction) or have it available electronically and have your ID, as you will need this to collect your key. You can arrive from the start date of your contract, which you can find on your offer letter or license (Letter of Allocation). When you arrive, take your Arrivals pass to one of our key collection offices. Information about key collection offices are in the arrival key collection 2022-23 section below.
