I would definitely get an application in. If you log into the BT job page you can see what jobs you have applied for and what status they are on. If the most recent is closed/unsuccessful then get another in just incase.
Hi Frazmataz666 - I got an email last week from Openreach saying that I'm being considered for 2018 intake and they hope to be in touch soon with an assessment centre date (or words to that effect). As I have already done the situational strengths and video interview I don't need to do them again.
