There's slow and CS slow!!! I applied November 18 and I'm still waiting for a job offer I was put on reserve list on 1st of July after interview in June. Don't worry forget about it ave time is 15 months, my mate's been on reserve since July last year and only now been offered a provisional contract.

This is probably the best place to ask right now. I unfortunately do not have the A-Levels required for the BFO job I have applied for, it stated I needed 2 between Grade A-E, but instead I have put my Level 3 Diploma and an Advanced Level Apprenticeship qualification in there instead, anyone think this'll be alright? My scores in my test were pretty good and I've just submitted my Persona Statement so am quietly confident of getting an interview, but I'm worried they'll tell me where to go since I don't have the A Levels.

Just wondering if everyone on here has actually put anything different to A-Levels or have used relevant experience instead? Hoping I'm alright, that's if I even get to that stage!

Hey guys, I’ve just received an email saying I have met the required standards and I have now been put on a reserve list. If I don’t hear from them within 12 months then it means they haven’t been able to offer me a job. Anyone else had this?

Yeah, Had this email back in 2018. December.
Still haven't had any feedback on the Sift part of the application.
It's a long one.

What is the point of placing us on the reserve list? If were good enough why not offer us jobs as they have started a huge recruitment campaign again recently!

So we met required standard but still not good enough???

Mate we are good enough, its the way BF operate they build a pipeline a BIG pipeline to supply new recuirts, as there are allways movements going on from one port to the next people leaving etc-. Brexit has caused a massive flux in this normal process with anticipated vacancies increasing and no defenative plans for budgets etc etc as I've said earlier on this thread as others have, just take a pew and forget about the application until you here something

So after 12 months on the reserve list you have to start all over again from scratch?
