I've just completed the references section and then called the new hire team, they're happy to hold off applying for your references if you've got a good reason. They were going to ask for my ne today and I don't start until August it could have caused issues with my boss.

Hi Mate

Thanks

If you have your hiring managers details I guess you could try them. Failing that maybe try the new hire team. It may be that the van isn't even allocated into Friday but if you explain the situation maybe they can help.

I've just got an assessment centre date. The 23rd (afternoon) in Glasgow. Has anyone else got this date/location?

Any interview tips would also be welcome.

Cheers

Has anyone had the assessment at the Cambridge racecourse? I'm just looking for some tips of where to park when I arrive and how to get to the building if possible. If not I'll figure it out

There are so many tips in previous posts there is also a dedicated thread to the assessments although to be fair not many people seem to bother with that.

Best advice be yourself and give it 110% having a knowledge of what Openreach do wont hurt but I wasn't asked anything about OR. Have a good understanding of health and safety especially with a view to things like your current job because they are likely to use it an example or at least ask what you do in your current job health and safety wise. If you can show an aptitude to using health and safety properly then it seems to go a long way.
They aren't trying to trip you up though and in general the whole thing is very relaxed.

They like to delve deeper into your answers too so be honest and prepared.

Good luck mate I done mine at Glasgow.

If you're driving then there isn't much parking to be honest, I parked across the bridge at Clyde place, costs £3.50 for all day which isn't bad.

Everyone on the day will make you feel at ease so try not to worry about it too much. On the interviews they asked me about customers and health and safety etc. They are not there to trip you up, so it's nothing to worry about.

Try not to panic on the plug, a lot of people flap and that's when things start going wrong. Make sure you practice before it and there's no rush.

Any other questions just give me a message
