Holiday works in hours. And you can't buy holiday as such. There is unpaid leave and special leave. And say for example you work a 4 day week and your day off falls on a bank holiday the company will give you a day back in a sense as annual leave.

In reply to a post by Kirky89:
Hi everyone just another question for some of the guys that already work for OR how's does the holiday entitlement work is it done by hours? Also can you buy more holiday and If so how does that work?


Many years it has also been possible to carry forward 5 days (roughly that anyway), which is handy. I've never had problems getting holidays I've wanted and I tend to take long 3 week (or more) holidays when I go abroad.

Are you the BT rep on here?


He's just trying to help you not get in trouble. Same as me when I mentioned about being very careful about what you do with your van.

They don't like any of us going to the Ex for any reason!


Well that depends on the manager, for most it's no big deal. Don't take the mick and it's fine.

Received my final confirmation from them this morning that all my checks had been done, had all my managers details on there too and my employee number.

Original application was April last year, so this has been quite a journey!

My email was quite a long email with the contract at the end, lots of info about the job and where ill be based, holiday entitlement etc. The was no link as such but there was an accept or decline offer at the bottom. Once I clicked that the heading changed to thank you for accepting or something like that. When I went to the Taleo site everything had changed. The page itself has a menu down the left hand side which are basically my tasks to complete. I have done most of those now smile


There is a little info on there about a new starters page I can visit which I will do later today.

There was an email account which may be helpful to you if you are having issues bt.apprenticeships@bt.com it basically says any problems or questions contact them there.

Sorry I can't be of any more help than that I hope you get it sorted.

I will say I sent an email to the lady that sent my Assessment details email asking where my offer email was (slightly more politely than that of course.) she replied today saying that a number of use had been listed for the team to send out contracts shortly and then a few hours later there it was.

*edit* I just tried going directly to the Taleo website and it looks normal so I double checked the email and there is a link there https://bt.taleo.net/careersection/myprocesses.ftl?l...
It asks you to log in with your taleo info unless you havent signed your contract online in which case it says to say you forgot your password.
I'm going to assume even if the link is meant for me you'll be redirected to yours.

Had you already completed some tasks when you got this email?
I have completed some tasks but haven't been asked for clothing sizes or driving licence check so I'm wondering if that will come later.
