Is everybody who passed the interview and medical etc been delayed in being given a start date or have some peoiple actually started?
I failed at the interview stage last year and called HR earlier to check whether the force would be recruiting this year, she said yes but it would likely be towards the middle or end of the year with a view to start next summer. This seems a bit odd if everybody has been delayed this time around.
Some people started. they were in cohorts from September 2013 through to March 2014, if i am not mistaken. Us at the bottom of the sorting pile are to start Feb 2015. It was an awful stroke of ill-luck. I suppose from an practical/financial point of view, those of us who passed last year are best placed kept on file for next year rather than go through the whole process again. Though like Goth says, it gives those of us waiting more confidence that the cohorts will actually go ahead if they plan on further recruitment.
In terms of still progressing, no. Other than being allocated to a cohort there has been nothing else said. It is still 9 months away so best case scenario is they get medical, fitness and vetting arranged by October/November.
I've put it all to the back of mind to be honest. I've spent a lot of time going through the motions of it all, what with preparing the for AC and interview. What will be, will be.
