Hi, Bit bizarre.
Ive had a email alert saying that a Trainee Talent Pool for Driver at Exeter and Bristol had opened up yesterday, The email came through at 0230 this morning, but Ive gone onto the GWR site and nothing!!! Have they taken it down already?

That was very quick, but from what I have seen GWR trainee vacancies go extremely quick. I think I missed 2 or 3 chances to apply in the last 12 months so I would check their careers page daily instead of relying on the email alert.

It's 2020/2021 not 2019/2020. Might sound pedantic, but they're separate recruitment drives and theres already a thread for the 2019 one

I too had an email at 2.30 yesterday morning, for some bizarre reason i was actually awake and managed to get an application in. Checked again at 09.30 yesterday morning and the jobs had all gone

Fate!

Good luck to all those who managed to get applications in. To all those who didn’t, keep a lookout!

Anyone heard anything after the second test?
Spoke to someone today who failed the first test and was told immediately.

Doubt we will until they are looking to start stage 1 assessments, could be a while especially as it’s a 20/21 potential course dates.

last time I applied didn't hear anything until an assessment invite that was 4 months later. Think you hear pretty quickly if unsuccessful

Considering they are still dealing with the 2019/20 pool, I doubt we will hear much this side of Christmas, no news is good news (in theory).
Thought you might know if you passed though (or failed it) suppose they would've had loads of applications

Don't be disheartened if you don't here anything for a while. There was nearly a 3 month period where I didn't hear anything about the 2019/20 pool.

I think you would know if you failed mate of mine heard within a few hours of being unsuccessful wheras I have not heard anything. From previous experience its now a long wait for a human to look at your application.

I’ve also applied for the 2020/21 talent pool.

Took both assessments (SJT and alphanumeric) on 29th June and am yet to hear back. Although I have read that if you fail the alpha, you’re told within a few hours.

Fingers crossed!
