    Surely they must of seen that its a draft and its not completed though and it refers to the completed application. If it doesent then its just mind boggling to say the least and they should let us complete our applications before emailing for further info. On one application it asks what areas you are interested in applying for too and my draft was not a preference on my completed application.
    Well I emailed them two days ago, for more information about the IT - TSO change in my application, they said the would reply within two days, I am going to ask for a Phone number because I need some clarity on which application they have put forward, whether it is the engineering or the IT application, If I do get the number I will share it with you, because it looks like you need clarity as well

    I had an email saying 2 days response, was about 8 before I got a response.
    The email back was sent at 10.10pm so they must be working late!

    Same here mate, I moved jobs in Jan but hate where I am now, so looking to move back to old job and do that until I hopefully start with BT!

    I'll be taking a paycut for this apprenticeship which will be tough with a little one, house etc but the chance to earn more than I am now and doing something I'll actually enjoy will keep me going!

    I currently have an apprenticeship with is due to finish in July, and like you said I want a career change, and I feel like I'm pushing everything away for this opportunity with BT, but they take too long with their applications.

    There are decent human beings out there like yourself who actually just want to go to work, enjoy their job and try their best and support their families. I couldent agree more with you either A_Jae... There is a difference between waiting and pushing things away because of waiting!

    I think they review each area individually, you will get an answer, but BT are bad with waiting times, I've been offered to do a course in august, that would mean me being in Yorkshire for two weeks, but I dont want to miss anything for BT,
