How did the phone interviews go for you? Thankfully I passed it and have a 1-2-1 interview on Thursday. If yourselfs or anyone has experience with this, any tips would definitely be helpful.

Thankyou

Which roles have you applied for in the apprenticeship programme? I've applied for HR in Manchester and have my phone interview next week. Very nervous!

I have a phone interview booked for Relationship manager apprentice and I'm not sure how to prepare for it, how did you prepare for yours.
Also is it standard to have a phone interview and then a 1-2-1 interview, is there no assessment centre or was your position not an apprenticeship?

Hi there. Had 3 online assessments. Then the phone interview yesterday. They asked me for examples of times I've had to learn something new and also about collaborating with others. They asked me why I want to work for RBS and they asked me how I had prepared for the phone interview (told them I used Internet to research) it lasted about 35 mins and it was hard going (for me anyway!) anyhow I got email today saying I'd reached the apprenticeship benchmark but they are now shortlisting for the one to one interviews so there's no guarantee I will even get an interview! Will be gutted if I don't! But anyway, good luck with your phone interview and let us know how you get on!

Thanks I really appreciate the help. My interview is next Tuesday, and yeah I'll update you on how it goes.
Congrats on actually getting that far, surprised there isn't an assessment centre because for positions like this there usually is, hopefully you get shortlisted.
Thanks again.

Just done the phone interview.
It was a lot more relaxed than I was expecting. A couple of questions didn't came up that I was expecting like what do you expect to be doing in your first 6 months of your apprenticeship.
But it was overall quite good.

Ah that's great news! Fingers crossed for you!
Did they tell you what happens next?
I got an email the next day saying 'congratulations, you've met the benchmark for the apprenticeship but not everyone will get a one to one interview! And that they are shortlisting!' Pretty gutted about that

Thanks.
Yeah she told me the same thing, said I'll get the email informing me within 48hours. I really don't get how they go on to shortlist people after they've met the criteria.
When do you think they'll let you know if your going onto 1-2-1 assessment?

I've been waiting since mid July to hear if I've made it to the 1-2-1 assessment, after hearing I've passed the telephone interview.

Does anyone know when these apprenticeships start?

According to a report in the press a while back the new RBS apprenticeships start in October!
Since July is a looooooong time to be expected to wait!
Do they let us know even if we're unsuccessful? Does anyone know? 😱

That's absolutely ridiculous, mid july and not a word back!!!!
They should keep people undated. Then again it's understandable if it starts in October and the deadline was only last week.
Hopefully next couple of weeks should be more than enough time....

I know it's been a very long time!
I would like to think I've been quite patient. I have considered emailing them to ask what is happening but I've been holding it off, I don't know why...

Hopefully I will hear back from them within a few days, if not I'll have to contact them.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure they'll let us know if we're unsuccessful. When I checked my application, it says 'under consideration.' I really hope I get it though!

What location is your apprenticeship that you've applied for?
