Last week. Applied on the 21st heard back on the 31st. Never had a turn around like that before. I'm still waiting to hear back from GA and that was April.

Everything crossed that you hear back soon. I don't understand how these things work, just feels like they pull it out of a hat. This is the first time in seven years of applying that I even made the assessment stage, so here's hoping it's positive.

Wish you all the best mate!
Did you do anything different on this application compared to previous ones in last 7 years?

My statement wasn’t even in depth so don’t think I’ll get to assessment stage lol

I started a new job that has a lot more safety critical aspects I could apply across. The last place I was at all I could really point to is how long I'd worked there. But who knows, it's all a mystery.
And it's all training for the next one. I am crafting a bank of answered questions I can put in each application.

Ah I see, that makes sense.
I drive buses atm so I’ve included that mainly as safety critical etc so fingers crossed

Yep, i almost missed the email, if i remember im sure it had INVITE in the subject box. But could be easily missed, i would say keep searching for ‘arriva’ in your email inbox......

Same here, almost deleted it. About to press the "confirm delete" button before realising what the email was.

Yeah, this is how it was. Thankfully I use one email address solely for applications so I check everything like that that comes through. A search for invite will help.

See above I did email them, they said it can take 2 weeks to 6months for them to sift through all applications. I have already passed stage 1 and 2 so am hoping that I might not hear for a while because of this. (That's what I'm telling myself anyway)
