    Good job - hope it all goes well for you!

    I'm still waiting on a response from my interview last Thursday; I can't help but feel that the longer I wait the less chance I have of an offer! :confused:

    Hopefully I'll either hear about that interview or get given another within the next few days...

    Hi everyone,
    Just thought it might be useful for people to know in case you're expecting interview invitations or decisions- I've just emailed Ami and got an out of office response until Friday 29th June, so I'm guessing we may not have any contact until then!

    I also got the same auto response. Presumably everyone has been given all of the offers they are going to get then!

    I will probably have to pull out from one of my interviews because 5 days notice simply isn't long enough notice for me to get it off work. I wonder what proportion of the 130 remaining are working full-time or are still at university? They seem to be awfully cavalier about expecting us to drop a day of work at very short notice.

    It seems very odd that there's a break for a week or so, if that is indeed the case.

    Obviously for us it's annoying, but if councils are holding interviews this week (or late last week) then surely they'll be wanting to know whether or not the candidates they make an offer to will take it up or not!

    I'm still hoping on another interview, but getting more pessimistic by the day!

    I'd suggest that they are at the LGA Annual Conference, and busy with stuff there.

    By the way, congratulations to people already offered positions!

    Indeed! Unfortunately, I'm not one of them . I got a "we regret..." email from Sadie Kerr today. If you're trying to contact people while Ami's away, try the main [email protected] - that's where my email came from.

    Good luck, all.

    Hey everyone - good luck for everyone with interviews and congratulations to those who have had offers. I was lucky enough to get an offer from Brent - my first choice too - so pretty over the moon. Was wondering who else from that interview got an offer, this is just me being nosy and wanting to know who im starting with

    Very well done I have my first choice interview coming up next week so I hope I get it too! Was there more than one place on offer then? How many people did they interview if so? Thanks .

    Brent offered 3 places - and there were 8 at the interview. I think they had better odds that some of the others though. a lot are only offering 2.

    For those who think they've missed out with Surrey CC, no decision has yet been taken. According to Ami, expect to hear by wednesday at the latest. Good luck!

    At my first interview, there were two places and only six people were interviewed. Seems there tends to be quite good odds. Hope that encourages everyone! Good luck!

    Guessing that everyone is probably suitable so they just pick who they like best.

    All the interviews are over now, right? How's everyone doing?

    Had an interview at Hammersmith and Fulham last Thursday, they're making us wait ten days! Torture.

    Hi,

    I've only just registered on this. I got two offers, from Surrey and Crawley, and took Surrey. Would be really interested to hear who I'll be working with at Surrey if anyone on here is?

    Good luck to everyone who's still waiting to hear back.

    I'll be at Surrey too! I was so impressed with them at the interview day so I was really happy to get the offer.
    Nice to know someone else who'll be there

    Congrats to everyone who's been offered a job...people who were unsuccessful, what are your next steps?

    Both of my interviews were in the last week of the interview period and in both cases the large majority of the people there would have been unsuccessful (12 applicants for 3 places, for example), so I'm guessing there's actually quite a lot of people who haven't been offered places? So much for the email telling us we were all 'successful' and this stage was, though a bit competitive, more about 'best fit'! (Not that I'm bitter/heartbroken or anything!) I'd be interested to know exactly what percentage of the people offered interviews were actually given jobs. Have emailed Ami on the off chance that some councils haven't filled all their places, but haven't had a reply yet and not really expecting one!

    Had my heart set on this programme, so sad to get to the very final stage and then no further!
