Hi glowworm, I didn't call myself Dr on my job apps following viva but funnily enough letters of invitation for interview were addressed to Dr J and when I went to interview they shook my hand and said "Great to meet you Dr J". So even if you don't refer to yourself as Dr on the job app they might call you it anyway ;-) Based on this my perception was that it's no big deal. You've got it and it's just a matter of the paper work being sorted.
Officially you shouldn't use the title until your award has been conferred. In my case, the university council will confer my PhD in a couple of weeks. My thesis has already been included in the library digital thesis repository and bound copies have been produced. So for all intents and purposes I have the PhD, but it’s just a matter of waiting until its official.
