    By the way just to clarify and add to what everyone has said, take 2 original forms of photographic ID and 2 sets of their photocopies. Not 1 photocopy for each ID but 2. I did not quite get that and I had to post another set of photocopies.
    I only gave one set of copies and they did not say that I needed to give another set. On my invite letter it only said 'copies' not 2 sets of copies. Confused..

    Also my applications on NHS jobs dont have the option to delete - but to remove, I think this is just normal

    I was also very surprised when she said they needed another set of photocopies. She gave me an address and asked me to post them. I don't really remember the reason she gave for needing the second set.

    Yeah, gathering from what everybody else has said the remove option is normal and comes up a month after you have submitted the application automatically (that was relieving).

    Thanks! Don't think I can really help you the Scotland recruitment process is totally different to England, it was a half hour interview I had, no assessment centre sorry! I'd say just get your passion across and know a bit about the scheme and the stuff you’re going to be doing but I've no idea how to prepare for assessment centres. Best of luck!

    To anyone who's had an interview...I realise you can't answer specific questions about the interview, but I have a couple of inocuous questions to ask

    Firstly - how hot or cold is the building?? I'm trying to decide what to wear so that a) my hands are neither freezing or sweaty, b) I don't go bright red with heat, and c) I don't sit there shivering!! I was planning on wearing a trouser suit but am not sure what top to wear underneath...smart knit, long-sleeved shirt or short-sleeved shirt?

    Secondly - will we get time to ask any questions, or is the 'speed dating' process too tight for this? What sort of questions should I ask, if there is time?

    I would appreciate any help, thank you!

    PS. Good luck to everyone who has interviews this week!

    If I remember correctly it's fairly warm but that may have been me overheating from panic! I was wearing a linen jacket with a (smart) long sleeved jersey top and didn't notice being too hot or cold (everyone else was wearing proper suit jackets). A knit would probably push you over into too hot.

    Don't worry about formulating any smart sounding questions to ask, if there is a question you genuinely need to ask then ask at the most relevant point.

    Thanks mateyface, that was really helpful! Like you I tend to get very hot when I'm nervous (often accompanied by red cheeks!), so it's useful to know what you wore and how you found the 'climate'

    I won't worry about coming up with a bunch of questions, then; I'll ask them if it seems appropriate at the time.

    I wore a trouser suit with a short-sleeved shirt on underneath, and I found that was fine temperature-wise. If anything, I was a little warm, certainly not cold (though how much of that was due to nerves is hard to say!).

    As for questions - I didn't get time to ask any. I think I'll get away with saying that there's a small 'de-brief' after the interview (I think they mostly just want a little feedback on how you found the whole process) - and this is an opportunity to ask any questions you may have on the general programme structure. So I would say you don't really need to worry about thinking up questions to ask, if you don't naturally have any.

    Pretty much same as what mateyface said
    Oh, and good luck!

    Congratulations. Hope you enjoy the training. Just got a phone call being turned down for the same job. Can't say I'm surprised given that I only had a day and a half to organise myself for the interview.

    Really wish England would hurry up and get back to people. If it's all done on points, then surely the whole process should be really quick!

    Yeah, it shouldn't take long, but I think it's the same team that is doing interviews and allocation, so they wouldn't move on to allocation until they are done with interviews - hence the 3 week wait. So once interviews are over this week, I think they should be fairly quick in sending out offer/rejection/waiting list letters! At least that's my understanding

    That's very good news Laura. I was thinking of sending you a message asking how you are getting on. This is brilliant. Are you celebrating? I don't know what I will do if I find out I got the job. I will be sooooo happy. Your summer is going to be brilliant. I am sooo happy for you.:thumbsup:[s] Take care.

    Sorry to hear that! My preparation didnt get put to any use since the questions they asked me were very strange and not what I expected I've done a project with the NHS though and presented it at a few conferences so think thats what helped me.

    Best of luck for England one!

    I woke up last night in a cold sweat. I had dreamt that they asked me 'If you were a duck what type of duck would you be?'. They then criticised me heavily for not relating my answer to audiology?!

    I don't think this application process is good for my mental health!

    They made most of the decisions the day of the interviews. When they're going to send those I don't know though.

    Good luck for Wednesday. I met a guy today who interviewed for vascular science and also have a audiology assessment centre on Wednesday. He'll definitely have an advantage on the stations not directly linked to a specialism questions...

    Today was really tough!:mad: and we were told that we (vascular science) are only interviewing for 11 posts....only 11 nationally! Thats crap.

    We were told today that they'll email all at the end of the month or even early May (cos of all the holidays coming).
