    Can I ask the people who've received offers, what time of day did you get the email or text?
    I got mine on the 4th of June at 3.50, however this was just another confirmation because I was offered the role back in May

    Just rang Capita having attended the assessment centre on the 23rd of April, to be told that just because we haven't heard anything yet, it doesn't mean we aren't successful as they are still awaiting results from some locations/frameworks apparently. A lot were sent out last week, but those who didn't hear back should expect to hear within the next 2 weeks?!! I was told 10 days two weeks ago!

    Lord, I swear this is bare awkward man..I wanna give up on this job and be happy, but it keeps giving me hope..What's more awkward/weird as hell is the fact that I can find an advert on indeed.com for 4 out of the 5 frameworks but none of digital and technology(the one I applied for) so I'm just confused as hell..

    Does anyone know how much we'll be getting paid - I didn't dare ask at the assessment centre!

    I accepted on Thursday and got nothing back so I rang this afternoon and the lady on the phone checked and they had got my email but were inundated with emails so hadn't had chance to read and reply to them all yet!

    Minimum of £19,500 dependant on department and location, so I'd expect the Northern cities and Scotland to be on the lower end of the scale and London to be on the higher end.

    Where did you apply to?

    Do you have any idea what the maximum would be? I'll probably be in London so just curious...

    Yorkshire so I'm hoping for Leeds - I just thought that seemed like a lot of money with the minimum wage for apprentices being £2.73 hr. I assumed, when I applied, that the £19,500 figure was once we'd fully qualified!

    And as we're joining at EO level, going of that an London salary would be £24k but I don't think we'll get £24k in an apprenticeship. Best just to wait and see what they offer us.

    Ah ok, phew! I was worried, but I know I definitely sent the acceptance email so it wouldn't be any fault my end!

    No that will be the minimum starting salary as the normal EO wage range is £22,000 - £29,000 depending on location and experience.

    I was looking at reviews on ratemyapprenticeship, and I'm pretty sure that some of the London based apprentices said they were earning around £26k +

    Well if it's that high then it looks like I'm moving out, maybe that's after a year or two of experience though? Anyways it's probably best just to wait till it gets confirmed haha

    Yeah, you're probably right! I just wish we wouldn't have to wait so long to hear all this information >.<

    I was looking on there too. Most people rate their apprenticeships pretty well, only bad thing they mention is poor tutoring/assessor support from Capita (no surprise there).

    For London they seem to be earning £23k-£27k, which is actually not too bad. Makes me consider possibly moving to London instead of commuting, however I would still only be able to afford a flatshare.

    Yeah a 1 bed/studio in a reasonable distance would be around £1000/pm, so a flat share would be the obvious choice but if you are planning to commute you need to weigh up the time and the cost of the commute as I wouldn't want a 2 hour commute each way but it depends on you really
