    I had my assessment thing at 3:30pm on the Tuesday (the last possible one) so I'm guessing, I'll be one of the last people to hear back.

    just wanted to join this thread

    I'm waiting for my accreditation to come through :/ what is this part, if they don't contact referees till later?

    also bit of advice needed, how is everyone picking venues? I want to work for a longer period of time obviously, but eton dorney is close to me. There' only one event going on there though, so I don't know whether I'd get much hours there?

    I think it's because it's not an existing company it's for the Olympics that's why we don't know all the details yet because the catering jobs have uniform and have been to training

    I got through the assessment thing in late Februrary...but I am still waiting for my accreditation to come through!!
    All I got since then, was a general email about 3 weeks ago saying that there was a change to the process and that we would be contacted by email..

    Should I get worried? Anyone in that case?

    I'm in the exact same position as you, but around 7 people in my school applied, had interviews around the same time, and we're all still waiting for the accreditation, so I wouldn't worry just yet!

    Right.. but though it's taking forever.... I have sent them a couple of emails and never got any reply.
    Just wondering, what if I dont get through the accreditation thing, will they let me know..?

    Have you got any news yet..?

    I heard back yesterday and said they're giving me a conditional offer for Olympic park, subject to accreditation. So you should hear back soon!

    where did you put for where you wanted to work? Cause I think they're doing it place by place, other friends heard before me for a different place when we had our interview at the same time

    I don't remember having to put a place but if I did I would have put the olympic park or athletes village. Something like that.
