    Doubt it. Not a very good job. Wouldn't bother personally.

    Applied ages ago. I believe people applied before I did too, not heard anything back.

    I think it was a joke... he’s probably applied and jokingly trying to put people off!

    Any idea when we’re likely to hear back from them? Also, will this be for a place in a talent pool or a genuine training place/job?!

    Just to say you're not on your own, I applied 21/11/19 and haven't heard anything back yet although my online application says "application in process" which I guess is a good thing unless it still say's the same thing in 3 years time. :lol:

    Im in the same boat, except I applied in September. I gave them a ring couple months back and they just said if it is still in the process, you will be considered. Just gotta have a lot of patience in this game.

    I applied a few months ago and then wasn't eligible to apply in November. Was able to apply this time around so tweaked covering letter and application. Fingers crossed.

    Anyone else had a response? I’m hoping they’re sending they’re sending emails individually or in batches. Otherwise it looks like I’ve failed :(

    If you log in to their DB site you can see whether you're still in the process or not.

    Ahhh, usually it will go to "application in process" or "end of process" next. All you can do is just wait for now, these things take time! It seems to be a good few months between each stage.
