Didn't mean to be cryptic! For the record, I didn't email them after we were placed on the reserve list so wasn't a reply or anything but the subject line does say PERSONAL: GES Fast Stream.

The gist of it was that they will let me know if I am being paced this year by the end of August but if they are unable to, my offer stands and I will be placed as a matter of priority in September 2021.

I wonder if they will be rolling out the email to everyone?

EDIT: it may sound bad if some people didn't get this email, but could be good if its that they think they will be able to place you by August so sending a holder to the rest of us?????? i lit have no idea though
I received the same thing today

Are the people who received these emails all on the fast stream?
I’m on the main stream so maybe that’s why I didn’t get one?

I'm a bit different to you guys (I think) but after my EAC I found out I had been put on the reserve list. Gutted that I was good enough but couldn't get a job and since the GES took so long to do anything during the EAC process I kind of forgot about this role and carried on applying (as I'd assumed I wouldn't make it off the reserve list).

However, today at around 5pm I got an email telling me that I'd received a provisional offer @ the treasury. Was initially excited until i revisited these threads and I'm not entirely sure how to feel if I'm honest.

I don't think this is relevant to you guys but I just thought I'd share and if there's anything I can do to clear things up I'll answer them!

Nah nice one! If I was in your position I’d be feeling pretty relieved to be honest lol

Was wondering, roughly when did you have your EAC? And have you interned with them before or anything?

I am very relieved but I'm worried they may take it away so I'm just hoping for more correspondence asap.

I had my EAC in late April (I think that makes me part of the 1st batch but I'm not entirely sure)

I've not interned with them before but I did work with an entity which was part of BEIS for a few months so maybe that could've played a factor?

Happy to answer any more questions

oh right! Yeah that's when I had my EAC as well (well, I had it mid april). Interesting how you were put on a reserve list straight away but myself and others were told there'd be a job - what the hell happened there!?

I'd say it's promising that you've been contacted, but yeah I'd be cautious. I just wish I'd hear anything about my prospects. Just received that one email about the reserve list over a month ago, and absolute silence since then, even though I've been messaging them

Yeah, I was a mainstream applicant with very average scores so I assumed I was going to be at the bottom of the pile if they were going to hire more people.

Honestly I would've been so angry if that happened to me because it's so difficult to get a job anyway and with these circumstances it's ridiculous.

I feel like attempting to talk to them is so difficult it's best not to even bother. It's also annoying how nobody has a phone number on their email signature so it's impossible to get in touch (especially as they love to not read our emails)

ohh you're on the mainstream? didn't realise.

Yeah I can't think about it too deeply to be honest cause I get very angry and upset about the whole situation. And also hate myself for not picking the treasury as a department preference. I saw it in the list, but there was no description of it at all on the GES page. I even emailed the GES to ask if it was included in the fast stream (cause i know they run their own grad scheme, so thought they might not do the fast stream anymore). Needless to say I never heard back, so went ahead and didn't put HMT down cause I thought it was a wasted choice. But now it seems to be the only department hiring people at this stage.

Yeah this whole thing is so messed and confusing up on so many levels. And that's a huge understatement...

Well done though! Keep us posted with it going ahead!

I am on GSR and got a similar email last week saying they'll email me again towards the end of August if there is a role available. However, they said if no role is available we will be on the reserve list for up to a year, nothing about the position being deferred or being made a priority come next September.
I believe the email does say we'll be given priority next September.

Congratulations! Do you mind sharing your EAC scores?

I got an email saying I have passed the assessment centre but due to too little positions available I would be put on the reserve list (2 weeks after being given the provisional job offer email)

Really? Do you know if you have passed the EAC?
My email said: you have reached the required standard but we are unable to offer you a job immediately.
And then spoke about how I’m on the reserve list.

For those who got the email saying they will be placed next September, is anyone worried that this may fall through again? Don't know how to ensure something like this doesn't happen again
