My post is in reference to this...
(Original post by OverDave)
Any mature students applied for this role?

Reason I ask is that I graduated last year so I don't have 2 years post graduation experience however I have 10 years work experience prior, and have travelled and worked abroad, I hold positions on the health and safety committee and as a union convenor for my workplace etc.

They stress that the reason they ask for two years post graduation experience is for "workplace maturity", I feel I'm disqualified by a technicality.

Anyone know if there is a way around other than to wait?

Thanks!

I had an email this morning to say I’ve passed the online tests and to wait for further steps. Anyone else heard back yet? I submitted mine on the 11th.

Hi there!

I think you'll be fine. I only graduated last year but I've been working for the last five years or so consecutively, excluding temporary jobs beforehand. I think they may say that to cut out people who have just been to university and had no work experience at all and if they see on your application that you have work experience then they're lenient?

That's what I'm hoping anyway haha!

@rhianydd @ipear Just had a quick Google around it and I think it means we are between stage two and three. Screening entails our applications being screened by a human being and not a computer, so fingers crossed again! Good luck everyone and congrats!! I'm so happy I've made it this far!

No problem. Hopefully not! I'm a bit apprehensive after looking back at my initial application as I have worked consecutively for 4-5 years now alongside my studies but I haven't worked full time (aside summers) as I am a mature student as well. But hopefully they won't be too harsh on that!

Hey! I received that email this morning as well and through to the screening stage!! And in regards to another post about work, I graduated back in 2016 so have 3 years post graduation work experience, as well as working all through my degree. And I’m just completing my masters. So I’m in a bit of a odd situation too but we’ll see what they say, fingers crossed!! 🤞🏻

Ahh yay congrats! I'm just really worried about the postgrad full time specification. Juts hope they take into consideration the fact I've worked the last 5 years alongside study, ahh! I'm sure you'll be fine! Fingers crossed indeed!

Hi everyone.

I'm saying my farewells. I had an email today saying they will no longer continue with my application. I think my suspicions about my lack of postgrad work experience (despite working through my degree and beforehand) has gone against me. I'm now looking at other routes so if anyone has suggestions, please do.

Good luck all.

So sorry to hear that! It seems really unfair. Good luck with the other routes!

Such a shame!! I had an email asking to explain my work experience as well and as most of mine is zero hours/ part time contracts but doing full time hours I’m probably going to be in the same situation as you but we’ll see! Good luck with everything in the future though!!
