    I think there's quite a few people who've applied a lot later than this before and got in comfortably so should be fine

    I and many others had a business interview after the matching process. It is so they can put you with your prospective manager rather than doing it in the assessment centre.
    HI, I applied for an industrial placement, Leading to Africa. I was put into the matching process on the 26th of November. I haven't heard anything since. Should I email them or wait it out? Kind of getting worried :L

    So If it's anything to go by, I went into the matching process early December and was matched mid-February. Everyone is different so right now I would not worry.

    I would give it another month at least before emailing them if it would give you peace of mind

    Hi,
    Congrats on getting to the business interview!

    I did my business interview by telephone with my prospective manager and it well thank you. The sort of things we spoke about included: going over my CV, academics, key achievements. They also spoke about the prospective role I was to go into and what the job would entail.

    Is your interview in person or by phone? And also if you have any questions do let me know.

    Hey, my interview is face to face.
    Im assuming they asked what you know about the company, why you want the role etc, and then competencies as well?
    Thanks again

    They pretty much asked me what you have mentioned. However, in my interview I wasn't asked what I knew about the company. Pretty much ran through the CV.

    Could someone explain me what the technical path exactly is? Their website is quite vague... and is it too late to apply?

    Last question: do you have to go to the UK for interviews if you live abroad?

    Thanks!

    There's no definite percentage chance of being recruited. It's 12 people per AC so I'd say there's a 1 in 12 chance, but they don't necessarily hire someone from every AC session. It might be 3/12 one day, 0/12 the next. Hope that makes sense.

    Hi - I am applying for the Futures Scheme for this July (2016).

    I was wondering if you could give me some tips on how to write the covering letter. I have completed my personal statement on the attached form they give you - is the covering letter similar to this?

    Also, how long did it take for you to get a reply after you sent your application off? Did you have to start in July 2016 like the ad said?

    Thank-You so much

    Congrats on the job! Well done. I am going to post my application today online - but I can't believe that they are already recruiting although the deadline is not over. I am worried now - I should have applied earlier. How hard were the online tests they give you?
