It means you are going in too low in the pay scale, the previous scheme with the higher advertised pay is what you should be on. Trouble is you don't want to lose this one. I reckon Openreach will be getting Apprenticeship subsidies on the new one.

The recruitment page I think someone linked to earlier has an overlay that lists graduate recruitment. Might be worth finding it, read, then ask about it. If you can't find it give me a shout and I'll see if I can find the link that gave it me. If you do find it, repost the link for others.

Sounds like it is "about to graduate" recruitment then. (Which is of course the usual meaning of Graduate Recruitment).

You should be looking higher still. IIRC there were recruitment levels above it on the overlay I referred to.

I imagine that there is a lot people have older qualifications and experience but having to start at the bottom again. Not totally fair but should eventually allow you to advance quicker i would think.

That's the one. I must have been thinking of the "Accelerated Leadership Programme". Which won't be pole-climbing. Almost certainly office-based.

"Circa £60,000 salary, dependant on experience, and in addition a monthly car allowance".

Openreach use 'stock photos' of someone up a pole, at a cab etc, etc, This was set up as previously the standard photo's used in FEN etc had to be paid for every time.

Word went out that we could volunteer if we wanted to, and never one to shirk a free sarnie and a day off the tools I put me name forward.....

There were maybe 8 or 10 engineers there and thousands of photo's taken, up poles (with the photographer in a hoist bucket), in a joint box, at a cab, faulting in a property (the local level 2's house) even doing E side jointing in the cable chamber below Maidenhead exchange. I was in possession of one of the original trial JDSU's and offered to get it in some pics, nope, Hawks and laptops was the order of the day. Shots of the guy at the top of the pole are still featured strongly in silhouette on company publications.

There were many photo's taken, and did they ever use any of this balding old coot ? Nope, not one, that's baldish that is.
