    Oh sorry,I didn't really get a notification or anything saying that you had replied! My interview was.... ok. I probably could have said a lot more about the work they do, I feel like kicking myself as I knew everything but he threw me slightly and half way through my voice started going!!! Ah well, we find out pretty soon anyway =)

    The requirements said "You must have graduated within 2years".... I'm just outside the graduating period by 3months! I emailed and said this and that was the reply I got. As a result, I didn't bother applying as it put me off and did exactly what she wanted - deterred me away!

    Congratulations by the way on getting through to the next stage :-)

    Was very disheartening as I'd really like to work for Cafcass. But with an attitude like that from their Senior HR Partner, not sure I want to be associated with a person like that to be honest! :/ Nevertheless, all the very best
