Congrats! Need to let us know how soon they want you to start once you hear. I don't think they'd quote you less than 5 or 6 weeks anyway as there are forms to get sent away and things to organise, so you should have plenty of time to put in notice.

Would just love a date so I knew when it was all starting

Awesome cheers! How long did each part of the assessment last roughly? For example, how long did you get to do the wiring test?

You are normally given more than enough time. Also they are not looking for perfection. They are looking for your ability to follow instructions and do what you are told.

A few people on here have said the person doing the test has given a full demonstration before hand.

Iíll go from the start of what I can remember:
So I was there mega early prob 45 mins before, but be on time it started bang on, couple of openreach engineers get you to pick some coloured wires to check your not colour blind, fill a form out driving licence planned holidays etc

Your then taken up into a room given a presentation, they hammer the point that they only want people that want to work in all weathers up poles etc for height

Next split into 2 groups, we done wiring first, itís not a plug! At first it looks frightening but you do get a demonstration, donít muck about with the board till the guy is finished his demo, one guy did it just looked rude. Canít remember the time for that but everyone had plenty of time to finish,itís gel connectors a few screwed ones and push in connectors I think their making sure you can match colours so double check

Next 2 informal interviews 1 was sorting a customer problem/complaint how you delt with it , and why u feel you could do the job, other one is mainly health and safely how u deal with it in your current workplace whyís it important

Then we done the maths and English, a recipe for so many people you have to work out costs of ingredients and a few sums as well like I said bit of practice on bite size

Onto the English , rearranging sentences and looking for spelling and grammar mistakes Iím sure the guy said it was an hour and half allowed for this and basically thatís it, you need to try relax and be yourself thatís the main thing just being calm, hope this helps some of you

I know, this was discussed before on these forum. But can anyone refresh me on what to do if where I live requires parking permit from the council to park on my street?
