Yes mate it's 2nd week of April, just waiting on training location as it's still not confirmed. I hope you got the same date too
Still waiting for the DMI results as only sat it last Wednesday but I think it went well. Hopefully I'll hear in the next week or so. Good luck with it though mate.

Nothing yet but it did say by the 25th March so I’m hoping Monday is included in the range.....but it doesn’t appear anyone has had any contact.
So either no one on this forum has made the cut or they haven’t sent anything out yet.

So either no one on here has passed the sift or (hopefully) there’s been a delay in notifying people.
If 25th was the deadline date then you should be notified if your successful within 2 weeks of the closing date. That’s what Happened with the south hubs anyway

Closing date was 8th March but it closed early. The automated reply I got when I submitted my app said if you haven’t heard by 25th March then you were unsuccessful.

Just seems weird that no-one has posted on here about being successful.

That’s the email I git when I applied for JD role at the end of last year, however there was no closing date (it said if you haven’t heard within 2 weeks of the closing date you haven’t been successful). It was a case of checking manually to see when the advert disappears. Then it was more like 3-weeks after the closing date anyway so I wouldn’t take that as gospel.

I’m hoping you’re right.
Unless it’s been resolved/filled some other way I was hoping having the assessment passss and being in the talent pool with FL may have given me a strong chance, like you guys.

So are you in the talent pool for FL too? I think the assesment passes helped me with DB definitely. I guess it makes sense anyway, as it means they don’t have to reassess me? Having said that I read here somewhere about some people being made to retake them anyway?

There was a bloke on my assessment and he had already passed his but DB made him retake them

I think that was me who mentioned that Stigy, I since got some clarification from them that you had to have passed both stage 1 and stage 2 for them to accept it (I had only passed stage 1 so would of had to resit everything rather than just go to stage 2) - but if you guys have passed testing in its entirety then you'd go straight to DMI

Thats if my app has got passed the sift.....and going by their deadlines (which was yesterday) it hasn’t got through.

I don’t know about your apps but the form was quite generic with no part to ‘sell yourself’
