Hi guys,

I had an Assessment day up in Edinburgh on the 24th of January followed by an email on 29th saying I was successful and they would get training dates sorted by the start - mid February, I was just wondering if anyone else was in the same position as me or if anyone had heard anything as Iím still waiting.

Cheers


Hello Henderson.

If you don't mind me asking, what did the assessment entail?

Thank you.

Phil.

Sure no problem.
It started with an induction, itís really telling you about Openreach and the benefits for working with them, it takes around 20 minutes. After that you are split into groups where you will do maths and English tests, they are a mixture of difficulties, I donít think it effects your chances too much itís really just so they know what level you are at. Then thereís 2 separate interviews. There is also a practical test where you wire some Openreach equipment, itís not really trying to do it in record time or anything itís more to see if you can follow instructions. The interviewers are really friendly and helpful, they want you to do well as itís all at a cost for them to get you to the assessment Centres. In all honesty the video interview is the most difficult thing to do. I hope this helps and good luck!

Hi grumpy

Yeah, it seems to change quite sporadically.

Not to fret though mate. I read somewhere that somebody waited a year and he got a job!

Good luck with your career mate. What did you eventually get as your selected role?

I've heard sometimes they put you into a gang, instead of a network delivery engineer!

Cheers,

Phil.
