    Has anyone applied for one of these this year- I've applied for the Dept of Energy and Climate Change.

    Any ideas on when we might hear and how many applicants they have for the 50/60 places?

    I also applied for the DECC. I think we will hear back towards the end of the month. It's apparently extremely competitive, probably a lot of people have applied.

    Do you know if there are interviews held?

    Hi there,

    I applied for the Buisness, Innovation & Skills Department.

    The website says:
    The 2010 Vacation Placement Scheme has now closed. The GLS Recruitment Team will shortly be writing out to candidates to notify them of the outcome of their application.

    If you have any questions regarding the scheme, please call the GLS Recruitment Team on 0845 300 0793.


    => So i'm guessing we will hear shortly.

    The website said somewhere that some departments will interview, some will not.

    I did it last year. At the department I was in, they got about 200 apps for 6 places. So the odds aren't great!

    I applied for the GLS scheme last year and got a placement at Tsol. I heard back from them at the end of March, but things might have changed this year. Best of luck everyone!

    When I applied (Tsol) I got an email saying they hoped to get back to me no later than the 9th of March.

    Haven't heard anything yet though.

    No I didn't, what dept are you going for?

    Generally the GLS like sending letters instead of emails/phone calls, which is old school but somehow exciting (might just be the novelty!)

    TSol.... they just said that due to the overwhelming number of applicants people won't be hearing till around the 18th. Think they just sent it out to stop us harassing them tomorrow if no one had heard!

    Better than a rejection
