    Oh come on... you know in the e-mail we got sent about the interview it says “We will review applications as they arrive, so to improve your chances we encourage you complete this interview as soon as possible. ” but never mind 👀 I’ll just assume I didn’t get it, easier that way lol and probably is true anyway 😶
    Emailed them again. Still no concrete time-frame for a proper update.

    Still nothing I assume? What exactly have they been saying?
    They may as well have told me they'll get back to me next year.

    Just that they're still looking into it. Last update was 'couple of weeks'. Yeah, it's gone past a couple of weeks. NCA/Home Office are frustrating to apply for.

    I've been chasing this too, I was at assessment in June and was told on the day that they'd get back to us within two weeks.

    It's now approaching two months, and nothing has been said. I have been chasing the recruiting officers and have had positive communication with them. "We're very sorry, there is a lot of vetting to do and there have been delays", "We hope to have word in a couple more weeks".

    Last week I chased again, four weeks after being told two more weeks and was told to stop contacting them, they would tell me when they tell me, no decisions have been made.

    At least they're not fobbing me off.

    I've just re-read some of these posts... they're still interviewing? Is it the same window, or a new one that's come up?

    I am genuinely expecting to be given an answer about a week before the start date at this point.

    It's the the same recruitment window. They split the assessment centre up into 2 groups the second group haven't had theirs yet.

    October. So they could theoretically not tell us until late September.

    I was told at interview that they'd ideally like to recruit everyone that's interviewing. Whether that was schpeil or not, we shall see.

    It seems to be a very long drawn out process!

    I suppose I'm just glad that I'm part of the group that haven't yet been interviewed! The wait would be killing me if I'd had to go through it all and still not know!!!

    I thought at the assessment centres there would be hundreds of us and then they narrow down who they want to interview on that day ?
