    I was contacted via email two days after my assessment.

    Lemony, I'm not sure if my message was sent to you.
    Aha, it did! Thank you so much! I just sent you another one

    Anyone heard back from them? I had my assessment on Tuesday, they said they would let us know within two days.. does that mean I didn't get the job?

    Yeah, had the assessment Tuesday 9.30 at farringdon and got an email from them this morning saying I was successful. They will get back to you soon so don't worry. They took about 7 working days to call me for a phone interview after I finished the online tests, so don't read the time lag as an unsuccessful application .

    Cheers I took a bank statement in the end but they didn't even look at it. Don't think I did too well if I'm honest.

    Hey, I def passed the phone interview last week and they said they would email me with information about where to go and what to bring but they haven't and I'm worried they might not. My assessment is supposed to be this wednesday at 9.30 in Farringdon. If you get the chance can you let me know the location and what you need to bring please, really don't want to miss this opportunity.

    Thanks very much!
