    Thanks mate that is re-assuring. Mine took placein newcastle city centre. There was a couple of candidates that had travelled all the way from Scotland and other places up north. I was very surprised.
    Yeah was similar to mine. They told me I would get invited to an assessment centre once there was enough candidates from my area. On the day they were from all over the south.

    Ahh just goes to show how competitive it is. Was your interview for a specific openreach position or just service delivery as far as you know ?

    Mine was for service delivery, during the interview they asked if I have a specific role I wanted and gave me three choices. One was service delivery and that's what I want to do myself.

    That is good how you had a choice. I never had a choice.

    It could be that if SD is full then they know what else I would like to do. Or it could be that their testing to see if you want to do SD as that's what my assessment centre was for. Not sure but hopefully I'll hear soon as this wait is horrible

    Hi guys I'm doing the profile questions on the application form right now. I'm not sure how much we are expected to write for these two questions though, there's normally a word limit on these things to give you an idea. Is about 250 words for each around what most people entered?

    There is a limit but I cant remember what it is off hand.. but it is alot.. all I would say is spell your heart out why they should employ you. I filled every space down to the brink of why im suited to the role and why they should employ me. I might not get the job but it got me an interview and sifted past thousands. PM me if you need further advice.

    Hello mate.

    I had my assessment on Friday and if you get invited I would be happy to share anything you need to know. I dont know what the situation is for your area so I couldent comment on what opportunities youl be put forward for but I am under the impression they recruit all year round so fingers crossed for you. All the information is on the BT careers FAQ.

    I applied for the BT apprenticeship programme almost two months ago now and i was told i would be contacted when a date for an assessment centre has been set but i haven't received anything. Is this the same for anyone else? I'm from Manchester.
