Just wanted to see if anyone is in the same situation as me. I applied for the trainee engineer roles in Feb this year and passed the video interview also in Feb. I am now in the situation where I am waiting to hopefully be invited to an assessment centre.
I received an email in June telling me that they had filled all the roles in my area but they will keep my details on file and contact me in the future to see if I am still interested when new roles appear. Recently I went on the openreach website and checked the job roles available on the map and there are two trainee roles available within a 40 minute drive from my home postcode. I emailed openreach and got the same generic reply I have always received when I have emailed them, which is extremely frustrating as they do not appear to tailor their reply to anything that you may ask them.
Also I have noticed a lot of people on here saying they receive emails from openreach saying they haven't forgotten about them, I haven't received anything like this, am I reading to much into this?
I would love to have the opportunity to work for openreach but the recruitment process and lack of any valuable information you receive for them is seriously frustrating.
