    It's a miracle that you got through
    Haha! It was one someone rang me from when I requested to have my location changed. I've completely given up on all the main numbers we've been told to ring in the past.

    Hello Holly. I think I'm in the same boat as you. I've heard nothing since mid August when I confirmed I would like to be considered after being put on the reserve list. Have you heard anymore? Beginning to get seriously stressed.

    Yes I'm the same, seriously stressed not knowing what I'm doing, I emailed nadine a couple of weeks ago and she replied last Monday saying she's in the posting process and will be in touch within 10 working days which takes us up to this Friday

    I managed to get through and spoke to Nadine actually, after calling what felt like the entire civil service. She did to start with, seem a bit annoyed that I was passed through to her but she said they are still working on the positions and that we should be notified soon. I have no idea how long soon will be. I hope it's this week. Not to make it any worse for everyone, I did notice she said twice 'if you are successful.' So it seems nothing is set in stone yet... :/

    Are we going to be contacted regardless of whether we are successful or not though? In what context did she say "if you are successful" if you don't mind me asking?

    Honestly if any of us don't get anything
    After all this then that's pretty outrageous
    I know. Some of the people I spoke to while being passed around were quite rude as if I was causing them grief, but personally not hearing anything for 6 weeks what do they expect. Anyway I hope we all get the good news we've been waiting for. Good luck

    I totally agree I think they're probably stressed with the workload and enquiries are viewed as slowing them down but they could've simply sent a mass email with an update to avoid that

    Yeah we will be contacted regardless from what I understand. She just slipped it in twice in conversation. I explained that I understand they must be inundated with people wanting information, I just hadn't heard anything for 6 weeks to which she said they were still busy sorting posts and if you are successful you will be contacted soon. Everyone will be contacted though. That's all I know I'm afraid. Not a lot and it was hard enough to find that out.

    Guys nadine just rang me and I've been posted to the department for education!

    I asked her if she's really busy and she said the process takes so long because she has to check commuting distance for each post and person don't lose hope!
    It was an 0300 number so look out for that

    Well I said that I was willing to move for a framework that I'd be happy with and that's why I was offered away from home but Nadine said she's trying to sort people out so they are as close to home as they can be
