    If you log on & look at job advert theres a contact email on the advert . her name is Wendy I think it was . I originally had an offer , logged back in and it went to reserve I emailed she said I shouldn't have logged on I was to wait for an email . I think it's all got a bit messy

    Ah thanks I have emailed her once already to see if I had to send back health questionnaire but she said not while on reserve , what offices did you apply for ? There is obviously different list for areas etc I would of thought ? It's all a bit of a mystery ! 😀

    It seems nobody knows what's going on lol , I think I'll email her tomorrow to see where I am on Swansea list and see if all offers have been made for positions available or they have just placed the highest scorers first and then working through reserve ? I think there was 56 positions , 1 in each centre so who knows !

    I scored 6656 , which I thought was good and had excellent feedback but lots of people scored 7 in most areas from what I can gather ! I just emailed again to ask how the reserve list was being used and any new vacancies coming up , she just replied it's used for declined offers etc ! Those were exact words lol so it's just a case of waiting it out by the looks of it and carry on applying elsewhere ! 😀
