    What do people think about how many placements each department took on - e.g evidently the biggest recruitment was DWP (biggest gvt dpt) but was wondering what the cut was for other departments as have seen people in the MoD, BIS and CO?

    I asked HR at BIS (dept I was assigned to) and she said 12 Business Administration Apprentices for BIS in this cycle. I'm based in London btw, and am pretty sure other BIS Apprentices are too.

    I believe she said BIS was aiming for a start date of 7th September, though nothing set in stone yet.

    Has anyone else been given the Digital and Technology framework? Judging by this thread I feel like I am the only one! Also has anyone not been given their first choice location as if I don't get mine (London) I won't be able to accept it and they are leaving it too late for me to make other plans for next year :/

    I'm getting rather annoyed with how slow everything's moving, any London Finance applicants not heard anything back after accepting their offer?

    It's the same for me also, I contacted Jo a couple of days ago and have received no response so far.

    I sent Jo an email this morning, but looking at other people I think she is getting bogged down with the amount of emails she is receiving. Fingers crossed for us though

    I emailed her last Friday and again on Wednesday morning. Still nothing. It seems as though very few have heard back from her directly this week. I assume that she is only responding to those who have actually been placed into a department. Its a shame we dont have any reassurance from her as to the going ons.
    I'm business admin in London by the way!

    Got a letter in the post today with forms to fill out from the Department for Education for security checks, so this must be my department. My location was London, so I assume that's where I will be. I'm doing business admin

    So who is best to email for info on what's going on?, is it this Jo person or just the regular ras.candidates email address?. As its been a close to a full month now since i accepted the offer (which did mention my role and placement) and have had no contact at all from the department, I'm a little worried.

    The last thing i got was this message "Thank you for accepting the offer, Someone will be in contact with you soon to discuss the next stage.", and that was shortly after the 11th of June.

    Also, anyone else wondering what will happen (if anything at all) next year for all the people put on the 15k salary due to the minimum wage increase?, do you recon they will keep these people at 15k or adjust the wage up in line with the minimum wage amount increase? (i thin 15k works out around £7.20 an hour anyway).
