    For all those still waiting and for those who have found out, i thought i should share my experience in case it helps someone?

    I spoke to capita on Friday who said all the assessment centres have now finished 2 weeks ago so for all those who have had offers, they would have filled the 400 vacancies for the fast track, therefore for all those who are still waiting there is now little hope for you guys, the reason why you haven't had a rejection email yet is because capita will have yes and no's in response to offer by monday then based on how man y rejections they get they will start to offer those out to those who scored fewer marks....

    I also asked about being offered my second choice (business admin) rather than my first (finance) and i was told finance has the least places and all offers are based on how you did at the AC, and now this is the only role i can accept...

    It is likely some people will not accept their offers to some of you waiting may be on that list of those that just missed the pass mark...

    has anyone had their locations and department confirmed yet?

    I don't think anyone will have their dates and locations yet man, if they're still waiting to confirm who's accepting their offers. By the end of next week we should know where we are headed to.

    Received an email saying i was successful for the Cyber Security position, I interviewed at Newcastle and was pleasantly surprised to hear that I got accepted as I thought my interview went extremely bad :P However I did think the online tests weren't that difficult so maybes they carried my interview. Just waiting to hear from the recruitment team now

    There are 450 places for fast track not 400. 50 of those are cyber security. I doubt finance has less available places, but you never know. Good job with the offer. Hope you don't mind too much that it is your 2nd option and not 1st finance. Or do you think it might be a deal breaker for you?

    I have not received anything since the confirmation email of me accepting the offer. The deadline was Monday the 8th of June and it is also the weekend so I will most probably hear from them some time next week.

    I know you didn't receive any correspondence after. I meant if they mentioned it in that email. But seems like that's a no then.

    Sorry I misunderstood you it seems, no they did not mention it in the emails.

    Marty89 I asked to be in Newcastle and said I would not consider moving at this time so hopefully I get Newcastle.

    Sadness knowing I didn't get it. I saw a group hug earlier, I'm in on that.
    Let's hope some of us who didn't get it were in the pile that just missed it and might still have a chance.

    I'm cyber security too man. With there only being 50 positions do you think we'll be grouped up in a couple of specific locations? I think we'll eventually get Develop Vetted as well.
