Hi Guys,

Just about finished week 8 of training so I thought I would give a quick update on how I'm getting on.

I don't want to go into too much detail as one of our trainers said the schedule could be changed for next years intake. i.e I spent 2 weeks at Yarnfield but this could be changing to 1 week.

I've really enjoyed the experience so far, it helps when you get a good group and you can make friends with the guys you'll be at the local training schools with, it makes the stays in hotels much easier to bear as the novelty wears of quickly.

I'd be happy to answer any questions about the training so far, so just ask.

Awesome! If I was successful I'd definitely be looking to pick people's brains about the training and setup etc.

Has anyone who's still applying had any contact with the recruitment team recently?

Hi Guys,
Found out this week that I had successful assessment day. Received email 5 days after assessmnet.No further job details or start date at the moment though.. Chuffed to bits, but realise recruiting team must be snowed under !!

Brief history
Applied Easter this year, did strengths test and video interview within a few days.
Received email late Sep telling me recruiting had ended for 2017, but I would be contacted when 2018 recruiting started.
Got a surprise email offering assessment date In Nov. Jumped at the opportunity!
Afternoon assessment, then sweating for 5 days..

So, just waiting further details for job start.

Best of luck to anyone applying.

Well 2nd time lucky for me.

Didn't get picked last year so now I have another crack at the assessment in Cardiff this coming January so fingers crossed.

Best of luck! When did you hear about you getting through to the assessment centre? Did you get some feedback from last time to let you prepare?

Hi Everyone. It's been interesting reading everyones experience. I have an important question. While working for openreach are you allowed to have another job? Basically I am contracted in a store for saturdays only which should not clash with the training period and I wanted to keep working at the store on saturdays not for the money but more of a social thing.

"Should" be ok as long as it has nowt to do with the same work OR do.
BUT please get it in writing from your manager and i would also get it from his manager as well.

AND MAKE SURE YOU KEEP COPIES !

Management can / do lose them !

I know guys who do other work outside of OR and all is ok

these comments are my own and in no way represent any company that i may or may not be linked too.
