Theres no travelling left other than those who get invited back to Waterside for the BA final assessment/interview, right?

Oh, and of course the lucky few who get to move to Jerez next year.

I assume Skyborne will get their results at the same time, giving successful candidates the same chance to prepare for the final stage!
What is the final stage? Isn't it a second interview?

Getting tense. Just to lighten up ; Final interview also with Psycho. Goes like this :

Psyche shows candidate diagram. Lots of squigely lines and asks; "What do you see here ?"
CAND. "Boobs. Biggens. Not a boobs man myself but, nice."
Showing a second diagram. More squigley lines, asks;
"Well, what do you see here ?"
CAND." Ooooh. My fave. I call this 'Club sandwich' -. Two naked chics, me in the middle."
Psyche, now looking exasperated shows final diagram. Lots of coloured squigley lines and head cradled , asks........
"Well, what do you see her ?"
CND; "Yuck. Full blown orgy. five guys, five gals. Not my scene !".
PSYCH. " Yeah, we know, you like club sandwich but, look, you know, you are obsessed with sex !"
CAND;" "ME ????".........Whatabout you,showing me all these dirty pictures !!".

Damn, just given you bods answers to the final quiz. Good luck.

At my interview they said the same thing, but its more likely to be end of this week or beginning of the next, becuase the last interviews are today and then they have to review each application to choose who to send through. I'm not sure how quickly they'll do it, but we'll see

Did other people have just one person interviewing them for FTE? I assumed there'd be maybe two on the panel as interview responses can be very subjective and up to the interpretation of one person. I guess that it makes sense as it would be a lot for them to invest in the recruitment process if every candidate had two interviewers, but can't help but think that interviewer holds a lot of power!

I have had an e-mail response today at around 13.30, hope you all get yours today too and get the news you are hoping for. We just need to remember how well we have all done in getting to this point, and how competitive the process has been. (Skyborne candidate)

Congratulations to lemony and anyone else who has received good news! You must be so chuffed!

Has anyone from the FTE pool received a response? I haven't but then again I really don't think my interview went well so I'm not exactly expecting a good response...
