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
I am worried about it, as I feel I can't trust them to stick to their word after the mess they've made of recruitment this year. I'm not sure what to do either, other than maybe applying to other graduate jobs just in case (although the prospect of doing it all over again is a bit daunting).

Has anyone heard anything from GESR since their email about the 2021 start? My email said they'd provide me with another update by the end of August to confirm if they've found me a role or if I'll start in Sept 2021, but heard nothing.

Just got an email yesterday basically confirming that I am still on the reserve list and if I am not placed within a year, I will be allocated next September

^^ seconded. It's so frustrating not being able to contact anyone.

I'm trying to plan accommodation, alternative employment etc. in case I start in 2021, but there's still the possibility of a 2020 start!

With regard to the 2021 start date, I have not received an email confirming this. On my portal, it just says that I will be taken off the reserve list in January if no job becomes available. Is anyone else in this position?

I was put on the reserve list and, got the email about potentially being deferred to next September.

Just got another email saying I now have a placement. Looks like they are placing people now!

hmmm that is strange. my portal has not changed since I was offered a position (even though I was placed on the reserve list).

Very strange, i want to ask someone about but cannot gain any response. And no I did not do a masters. So much uncertainty makes me feel anxious.

Hey all, I received a reply from Sarah Ward, the Recruitment Manager. She reassured me that the intention is to offer everyone on the reserve list a job. I am not sure if this has already been stated here, but I thought I would share it nonetheless!

Great news if they can do this. I’m just starting a Masters course however, so will need to pay tuition fees if I don’t pull out the course soon. Hope we get offered jobs quickly

Yeah exactly the same boat here! I wish they'd let us know soon! (or even by the end of August, as they said they would)

Have you emailed the GES to say you’re doing that? Just wondering whether it might speed up the process or not
