Thank you, that’s a really helpful insight. When did you last go through the interview? Where have you applied to be based?
No problem. I had an interview end of last month, and I’ve applied for Dover and Folkestone😊

Thanks for the insight indeed, Ive also applied for Dover & Folkstone - Hopefully we will be working together !! I received the 'on hold' email - no interview email as yet (July application). Your interview last month, was that from an earlier recruitment drive? Best wishes and luck.

Aw no problem, somebody helped me out on another thread and I will be forever grateful! It’s so handy to have an insight so I’m glad I can do the same. Wow yes that would be so cool! Yeah it was an earlier drive, closed mid to end of May. Unfortunately I wasn’t successful with it, but it was a great learning experience😊.

Our closing date was 26/06/2020, was it the same for you? If so I think the ‘Jul’ must have been a typo! Think this is all the same campaign which will be nice as we can keep each other updated 😊. I received my link with the previous role I applied for a few hours after the initial invite, so if it’s anything similar I think you would receive yours on Monday, good luck 😁!

Hi! I applied for Edinburgh/Glasgow and I’ve been invited to a remote interview. As it’s remote you can do it any time but the deadline is Wed 26th. I scored a 5 for my personal statement/queuing question.

Hello Jordiesaurus, and well done on passing the interview stage. I had mine a week and a half ago and haven't heard, though to be honest I'm not optimistic, I'm usually not bad with interviews, but struggled speaking 'to' my webcam lens.
The apprentice process seems to be moving much quicker than other roles so hopefully you won't have too long to wait.

I feel exactly the same as you on the interview process Lexie. I found it rather strange and uncomfortable. I spent hours preparing for Q’s which I thought would be asked but weren’t. 😂 Let’s see what happens! Good luck and fingers crossed 🤞

Good luck to you too. I've not completely given up hope, there's maybe a chance I said enough of the right things amongst my rambling and worse than ever hand gesturing 😊

Hi, I got the same response that I had met the required standard, also got a email saying unfortunately they could not offer me a job and I would be on the reserve list for 12 months.Then next day they messaged for me to send image of both pages of my passport as I had only uploaded the page with my picture.Then 2 days after that I got a job offer.I think that maybe everyone who meets the standard is put on the reserve list, then I think they check the list and make offers.I at the vetting stage so the offer is provisional until they carry out all the checks etc.
