    Hi,

    I've applied to the Atos Graduate Scheme for a technical role in Digital Communication. I passed the online tests and the telephone interview and was then told that I was being considered for an assessment centre, and that "as soon as we have a date confirmed for a suitable role and location, we will send you the details and invite you to attend." I received this back in November, 3 months later and they STILL haven't sent me through any details for an assessment centre.

    Is there anyone else in my shoes, who's been waiting for an invite to an assessment centre, or are there others who have applied to Digital Communications who have attended an assessment centre in the last few months?

    They may be just trying to round up more candidates. I applied early Jan and have my telephone interview for tomorrow.
    Any advice on that stage?

    I applied for the business consulting graduate scheme in November, passed all pre-AC stages and am yet to hear from them. Did anyone get a heads-up from them about the business consulting scheme yet?

    According to the website they have now extended application to the 24th April 2017. The graduate recruitment is a complete and utter joke, I've been told I am being considered for an AC since November!

    @gingerwizard: Yeah, it does take quite a bit of time. I was able to transfer my application to another programme since all of the Business Consulting stream vacancies were filled. They're operating on a rolling application deadline model so apparently ACs invites are sent on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Find it so hard to believe roles have been filled when i've heard nothing concrete for months. What was your orignal application stream if you don't mind me asking. I'm finance but regret not picking Project Management if i'm totally honest.

    I guess I could always ask the question if they haven't scheduled either AC's for the two. You say its first come first serve but its almost april now so the majority will have already reached the ac stage by now so dnt know how they'll determine who gets a place on the AC's.

    Anyone get another absolutely useless email for finance. I'm thinking of trying to switch to project management if they havent scheduled AC's as i'm sick of these emails from ATOS.

    That generic 'We will be in touch once dates are set...' email is exactly what I have and I applied for the Project Management sttream. I get the feeling they might have filled some of the vacancies already and this might be a bit of stockpiling. Perhaps i'm being a bit too pessimistic. I am keeping the applications going though and not sticking my eggs in one basket.
