    I am glad to have found this group, knowing that I'm not the only one waiting for a response.
    I had my interview 4 weeks ago. I spoke to someone from HR on the phone yesterday, we may be looking at a July response sadly *sigh*

    I know right.....after my interview I was told a 2 weeks. Its now four, reading this thread I didn't realize they were interviewing more people. Perhaps decisions are taking longer as they have to assign where people will go and what they will be doing on the 12-month fix contract. I remember my interviewer saying that they hope the HEO interns will stay on after the contract as they do not want to be recruiting again, well at least not the next year. So they are probably digging deep. Also they have to consider really what interview feedback responses will be for those who have not been accepted, as this is one of their policies for getting to the final stage. If you read the job description they didn't actually confirm start dates of when you hear back from them. Also am sure a lot of people put down London as first choice. (This is all assumptions though!)

    what do you mean?

    My interview was on Friday 27th May, and I had my application with them by 19/04 so this has been a bloody long process.

    I really, really hope it isn't July we hear back. Like that is a pretty large delay!

    I'd rather find out now, and then receive feedback in the next couple of weeks.

    It's terrible that they haven't sent an email out apologising for the delays too. People who aren't looking at this forum must feel so disheartened!


    Edit: in a moment of defeat, I have realised there is no way we are hearing back today.

    I've been lurking over this forum too. Quietly observing but now cant hold back.
    I wont be surprise for a July response. Having a history in HR, if applicants have been waiting for a while they tend to send out responses on a Friday. So that they wont have to deal with hefty phone calls till the next week. Allowing people to left off steam on a weekend. I put a bet on July 1st.

    Please ring them and tell us what they said! I spoke to them on Friday and every other day that week - I fear that I may be ringing myself out of a job if I call again (ha).

    Everyone had that apology/update email now? Nearly choked on my lunch when I saw it - thought it was the verdict on my interview. Still, better late than never. Confirmed for Wednesday now then?

    I was shaking! Argggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I thought it was all over then, I saw 'Outcome' and then 'apologies' in the line underneath and my heart was in my throat.
