Tried applying, when I go to log in it says it's sent a Access code to my mobile but nothings coming up on my phone. Amazing technology, can't just do with the normal username/password combination like every other TOC.

I applied via usual process and have had confirmation email from TFW. It appears ACORN are only assisting in the process. Was surprised as originally went to apply via mobile and was directed to ACORN, but later applied using laptop and went through TFW process.

Wierd stuff eh, why cant we all do the same process. Strange eh.

Some through Acorn, some through TFW website. mmm some getting questionaire, I even applied again last night through Acorn to see if I got that.

Will just leave it now.

As long as I get further in the process this time. Applied initally in Sept 2017, got to telephone interview, but didnt make it past that.
Last feb, I tried again but I was under the 6 months cutoff.. and didnt make it past the first sift.

Hi guys. I do not seem to have the link mentioned from Acorn either. I applied Monday. I wonder if it is something they introduced later in the week.

No questionnaire for me. What kind of things was it asking?

I’ve applied via the Acorn link for Cardiff as well. Submitted the initial application and received an email confirming my application. Haven’t received a link to answer any questions though.

At least im not the only one.

It looks like it is for a talent pool position so I'm assuming it may be a while before we hear anything. I've applied for Chester.

After submission Acorn sent an automated mail saying they will review and be in touch in the next few weeks if shortlisted
I imagine they will be working through in due course and the first e mail confirms your interest is registered with them

I've applied for Chester but am yet to hear anything. To be fair, due to the circumstances at present, I'm not expecting anything anytime soon. We can only hope they don't pull the jobs entirely. Someone I used to work with managed to get in at Chester, I think during their last recruitment. I might try and get in touch if it's still all quiet over the next few weeks.

Agree mate - did you just do the Acorn stuff? Were you sent the links to do the questionnaire 10 Questions in an hour?
I’ve applied for the train crew role also which has now gone on hold on TFW site
Suspect things will take a while.
Good luck with it

Yeah Acorn site mate.

Worked my way through the questionnaire, finished with about 25 minutes left and then decided to go back to the first two questions as I had "loads" of time. Proceeded to finish with about 50 seconds left!
I'm happy with what I wrote but whether or not that's good enough we'll see.

It was counting 150 words in each answer the second time round that slowed me down, had to chop and change it a few times.

Had an update today saying they've received a huge amount of applications, and will be looking to short list over the next few weeks.
