    I’m going to ask the usual question: can I relocate? It isn’t clear

    I’ll be giving that depot a go too.

    I saw these posted last week but when you went to apply it said internal only, had a feeling they would be external soon after. Cheers.

    I’m in the same boat as you I feel! I have still given it a go...will wait and see.
    This is my first ever TD application so not holding out much hope coming from a construction background- but fingers crossed

    submitted it anyway, I see that there's a withdraw button so if we find out for certain you cant relocate I will just withdraw it so I don't waste their time

    Well I've thrown my hat in too :) There were no questions about suitability for the role on this one I noticed, and nowhere to mention relocating, so I uploaded a Covering Letter in the CV section, hoping they would see that as showing initiative rather than an inability to follow instructions :-/

    But what will be will be.

    I remember reading in a past thread someone had an active ARL application and was asked by mtr to withdraw that or withdraw their mtr one. Can’t remember why.

    Put in for Gidea Park, fingers crossed.

    Application says a February 2019 start for Old Oak Common and a March 2019 start for Gidea Park and Maidenhead in case anyone missed that.

    Yes, me too.
    Was going to ask if anybody who has done these in the past could pass on anything.

    They’re pretty standard multiple choice “what would you do in this scenario” type things, nothing you can really “prepare” for. Just answer honestly.

    I’m assuming they send the SJT out to everyone who applied? Just as a means of whittling down the numbers without manual intervention...
