It looks like we are not going to hear the outcome of the applications near future!

Few minutes ago I received the following update from the Government Recruitment Service.

I applied for Gatwick and Heathrow both. The communication is for the Heathrow application.

I am already in civil service. I spoke with one of my SEO who is experienced in recruiting. He said our department has outsourced the sifting process to a private company when we were running last recruitment. I assume BF is doing the same.

I've applied for Edinburgh or Glasgow. Rather exciting but all the threads about how long it can take, if ever, are a bit of a downer!

Hey, so we're post closing date which was the 30th and into the paper sift. I've similarly applied for Glasgow and Edinburgh as 1st and 2nd choice, stating I'd also consider other postings. Are we all still awaiting initial responses and hoping for an interview date?

Morning Smithy, my status still sayers application being reviewed. I started this process with such high hopes, but now realise that there is no time scale. I have started to apply for other jobs.

Hi FiFi. Yeah I seem get the impression that things go pretty slow. I'm sure they'll be in a bit more of a rush this time with Brexit etc. Seems to be a large number of officers and Apprentices they're looking for so fingers crossed things go relatively quickly compared to previous applicants. My status is the same as yours, under review.

My application closing date was 15th of July. i think you applied for the 30th August one. I assume you need to wait until end Oct to hear something back. Good luck.

I'm going on 4th (last day). A senior manager offered me to help with a mock interview but he is not available for next 2 weeks. So I had to push my date to the end.
