This might be a daft question, but does anyone know how it works regarding no claims bonus on the insurance? I'm giving up my car as we will get a van, and also have access to my wife's motor outside work, I'm just a bit wary about losing my no claims, should I need to buy a car again in future.


Ex driving instructor here so I have somewhat of a clue, Basically your no claims will only last 2 years at last check after that you lose anything you have regardless of how much you had.
You can say you have been using a company vehicle which of course you will have been doing but you'll need to provide evidence. Which usually means contacting someone at head office and getting a statement of some sort. I'm speaking generally here I have no idea if Openreach supply this or who you contact at OR I just know its likely to work that way based on experience and previous knowledge.

Not all insurers will care and if they do it will likely not generate the same kind of discount a no claims would.

To be perfectly honest though a no claims doesn't help much these days since they put their prices up each year its rare you save very much its just good for them to make it look like you did wink

Has anyone had their assessment centre in the past few weeks? What were the 2 interviews like? Thx for any input

Roughly 2 or 3 weeks ago mine, the interviews where pretty relaxed affair one has I think it was 4 or 5 questions and 1 was just 2 questions the 2 questions where about safety and complience, I cant really rememeber the questions its all a bit of blur really but one was about dealing with an angry customer, I was asked something along the lines of why I would be good at the job? and also what kind of challenges did I think I would face. They like to delve a little deeper into some answers so best advice is dont BS them unless you can back it up. Be yourself but sell yourself, customer service matters and safety matters.

Hi I'm sure I've asked before or someone has but in terms of the colleague benefits does anyone who's already started know when that's available to new colleagues in terms of the free broadband and how much BT vision is


My contract and additional terms state that benefits are available from the start but it may take a few weeks for you to be uploaded to the system properly. Price I have no idea other than at my assessment they said it was free but for the initial payment of 1 whole pound.

That's a long summer for you then! Can you recall if the interview was a general interview or more technically focused?
