    My interview was on the 8th! I did hear from someone that roles are given out according to location, so maybe it's something to do with that.

    Thanks! I appreciate the positive feedback. You've reminded me that I need to do some more photography... it's been a while.

    I had my interview back in June, got offers in October, and have the first training event at the weekend. No telephone interview though.

    They say they're still interviewing for another couple of months, but I agree that it really is time people knew what dates they were wanted for.

    The roles are in the Technology group, something to do with radios. The Olympic role is at the Royal Artillery Barracks (and I'm thinking of camping at Blackheath RFC - gotta be good for the beer, right?) and Paralympic role is in the Copper Box on the Olympic park.

    Just moved up to Yorkshire, so I'm now definitely in need of a cheap place to stay in the summer!

    I received my offer while ago, accepted and then I got a text this afternoon saying that I have offer they want me to accept when I've already done it. :unimpressed:

    I'm getting worried now...I hope I don't just get a massive rejection email in April after waiting with anticipation for past few months.

    Received my offer for a telephone interview today and have had no other interviews, however it seems everyone else's telephone interview was their second? I had even given up on the idea of volunteering because I hadn't heard anything for so long.

    Anybody know what kind of questions they ask over the phone?

    Seems we also need to send a copy of our passport to them before our phone interview. At uni and passport is at home and you need a scanner right?

    Not sure, my role is to to welcome people so I think most jobs are customer based.

    Having a phone interview means you just cannot make it to a personal interview or are busy.

    Thought I'd posted this earlier but - I have an interview on the 9th of March, but I have had no indication at all that they want a copy of my passport? Where is that? I haven't been told what role I'm in either :rolleyes: Basically all I have is a time and date for my interview.

    They sent me an email a few days after I booked a phone interview time telling me to send them stuff like a certified passport copy...etc.

    Ah, I see it now. No idea how to a) scan a certified copy of my passport :lolwut: or b) who I can get to sign it... I don't know anyone around here, my personal tutor only started seeing me this semester, I only registered with my current GPs in September and I don't know any other professionals :erm:
