    lol i thought that too sparkle... i got one a couple of months ago and saw it was from the local hospital micro department and I was like "why would they be sending me stuff?!" Since I want to go into micro i got slightly excited for a second... then I realised.


    Congrats on the interview GraduateSK!

    I got a genetics interview too! *massive grin*

    Where were you shortlisted for? All the interviews are being held in Birmingham aren't they. I'm sortlisted for the St. Georges (southwest thames) one apparently.

    Do you think we all have exactly the same interviews on the day, no matter which position we're listed for then? I'm so confused as to how this works...

    Mine came as an email, with a letter as an attachment so I guess they'll probably send letters out too

    Congrats c97hc1 - yeah mine came in an email too

    Its says its the national recruitment way so all geneticists are being interviewed on the same day..

    It is confusing though

    I applied for the Micro posts too.

    Just emailed them about shortlisting, had the email from Leeds saying competition was high, and that all sixteen shortlisted candidates had a PhD, as well as half having an MSc and nearly all of them having a first or 2.1 in micro.

    He recommended I try and do postgrad study in micro, and failing that, apply for BMS posts because they'll be merging with ClinSci from next year.

    Reply from London said they're shortlisting in June, so still a while to wait for that. :s

    Waiting for reply from Manchester now, but I'm not too hopeful about getting an interview.

    Either way I have something in september, as I've been accepted onto a Micro MRes, so hopefully that'll give me a shove in the right direction.
    16! When I e-mailed them earlier in the year they only said they were going to shortlist 6. Just shows how many high level applications they have had! Was the Leeds one for one post or two? I can't remember

    Hi AUDIOLOGY folks :-)

    A new post seems to have come up. It's in Bradford for those of you that were after a place in the North. I assume the funding may have come up late or something?

    The closing date is 24th May and it's a 4 year job, with funding for the MSc year. You have to apply through NHS jobs website, but here is a link to the advert I have seen.

    Hope this is of interest to some of you, and another chance to those of you who weren't successful. xx

    Thanks Noangel! I have given up on my initial 4 choices now! although my masters in a medical related subjected has failed to cover my 2-2 in my undergrad degree, so im thinking why bother! there is nothing it seems I can say to them to overlook the 2-2. Any advice?

    Hi NoAngel,

    I noticed that the salary for this post is:

    Salary:- £25,472 -34,189
    Do you know whether trainees move up the band pay scale during their four years training like other NHS employees on the A4C pay scale, and do you know what the yearly increments are for band 6? I thought it was about £1k a year, which would mean by the end of four years trainees would be on about £29k - but looking at the salary on that job advert, I wonder if the increments are more? Or is that just the upper end of Band 6, which an employee would only reach after more than 4 years?

    Hi guys,

    Sambo- Why not give it another shot? I'd be happy to help with your application. For me, I don't think it was about my degree grade (I hadn't yet finished my degree when I applied), it was more about the fact that I'd had previous NHS work experience (not Audiology related) and I had visited 2 local departments which I could talk about. What sort of visits have you managed to do?

    fishdrivingcars- Basically each year (well, I think it is each year anyway!), everyone gets some sort of pay increase in the NHS whether or not they move up a band or even move up within their own band. As a trainee I started in Sept on £24,831 and this month my salary has increased to £25,472. This rise is despite my increment date not being until Oct 2011. So by then i'll have moved up to the next step I think. So I won't move up after my MSc but will after my first year of training. So you'll move up like anyone else on band 6.
