Thought I would start a fresh thread for all of us going through the process for various depots for 2019/20.
I’m in the talent pool for Exeter St David’s after passing my DMI on 11th April.

I'm in the pool for 18/19 so does that count? Lol. Still waiting unfortunately, been in contact with HR and told to sit tight. My DMI was may 22 2018 so almost been in the pool a year now. I MUST be close to the top now.. RIGHT?!:lol:

Ok, hopefully you’re wait isn’t long.
When I had my DMI they said there would be a course later in the year but there was no clear date yet. So hopefully it won’t be too long a wait for yourself.
I guess from reading the threads getting a medical does not give you a confirmed start date and just another thing they do?,

Like @tiptoptaff said, when they invite you to a medical they will tell you your start date.
But obviously that is a conditional start date, you have to pass the DBS and medical first before the formal offer.

As has been said really. The start date they give you will be verbal (mine was anyway) and they then send a conditional offer (basically a job offer as long as you pass all their set conditions including medical and DBS). They will then confirm the start date when they send you your formal offer once you’ve met their conditions.
