Iíve just had this:
Firstly I want to thank you for your application for the Openreach Trainee Engineer role, and our apologies for how long it has taken us to contact you.
We have been overwhelmed with applicants for these roles. To date we have had in excess of 60,000 applications for less than 3000 trainee engineer vacancies.
Unfortunately due to the limited number of vacancies we had and the high number of applications received, we have now completed our recruitment in your area at this time.
I want to add that we will keep all your details on file. When new roles are released, we will contact you to see if you would still be interested in working for Openreach.
Thank you again for your application and patience.
Openreach Recruitment Team
Gutted, been waiting for an assessment centre date since January.
