    How did people get on this week was their many in each group?


  • Registered Users Posts: 13 ✭✭✭ Eloisemcl


    Anyone hear anything yet?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 167 ✭✭ bluethunder


    Not a peep, i'm expecting to hear something by Friday at the latest going by what they told us at the assessment centre. Heart skips a beat every time the phone rings/I get an email.

    Best of luck everyone.

    There were 48 people interviewed for 16 positions. That's a one in three chance...

    They said we would hear within the next 2 weeks when I was at the assessment so not really expecting to hear anything until next week myself.

    Offered a post. Couldnt take it as was in the wrong county!


  • Registered Users Posts: 13 ✭✭✭ Eloisemcl


    Was very upset about it. Would have loved it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 106 ✭✭ roe_cat


    Thought it was just Cork or Dublin - and you say which you're applying for at the beginning?


  • Registered Users Posts: 13 ✭✭✭ Eloisemcl


    I applied for cork. Got offered dublin. Apparently its a panel and where ever your on the panel is where you ll be offered. Not sure is dublin or cork first on the panel fillment. I looked for feedback to find where i placed

    When you applied did you tick the box that you were interested in both Cork and Dublin?

    Did they give you much feedback as to when the fullfillment would be taking place for Cork?


  • Registered Users Posts: 13 ✭✭✭ Eloisemcl


    No just said cork. No feedback yet. Was very upset about it. Would have absolutely loved it

    I wonder why they offered Dublin to you then id you stated just Cork on the application form?

    Was it e-mail of phone they contacted you by?

    Sorry for all the questions, on edge here waiting.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13 ✭✭✭ Eloisemcl


    By phone call. She said it was just position on the panel and thats why i was offered dublin


  • Registered Users Posts: 77 ✭✭✭ Malarkey101


    Still havent heard but im assuming its not good if other have gotten offers.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13 ✭✭✭ Eloisemcl


    They may just be waiting to see where they want to put people first. I wouldnt be disheartened yet until officially hear job is not being offered

    I wouldn't necesarily say that's the case.

    Of all the people who went for interview only one person has had any subsequent contact.

    Will have to wait and see I would think.


  • Registered Users Posts: 15 ✭✭✭ Sir Nonchalant


    Same situation here; not heard anything yet. I don't know though, not sure my assessment day went all that well.

    Only one person *on this thread* has had any subsequent contact, that's only a handful of people out of 48. Who knows how many others have been contacted.

    I'll try and maintain some optimism, though and I certainly prefer your interpretation.

    There are alot of people on this thread who have commented, I'd be interested to know how many have heard anything back

    I still think its all to play for. I turned it down cause it was in dublin but im hoping against hope they ll come back to me with cork. Until i hear a full out rejection im staying positive. Everyone else should too


  • Registered Users Posts: 106 ✭✭ roe_cat


    Well - it's been 2 weeks and I've heard nothing :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 15 ✭✭✭ Sir Nonchalant


    Oh fair points, Nidot and Eloisemcl, it's better to stay positive. I was just thinking that others must have been contacted but either haven't checked in here or don't even know the thread exists (The group I was with were entirely unaware)

    And roe cat, 3 weeks today for me. Staying positive but kind of want to know one way or the other now really.


  • Registered Users Posts: 372 ✭✭ Nidot



    3 weeks today for me

    Would it fair to assume that everyone commenting on this thread applied for Cork???


  • Registered Users Posts: 15 ✭✭✭ Sir Nonchalant


    Certainly true for me. I'd take either though!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 167 ✭✭ bluethunder


    I've been holding back on posting here (didn't want to jinx anything til I got something in writing) but suppose I can give an update now cause I know how frustrating it was to be waiting for a call/email. I got a call last Friday and was offered a post in Cork. Delighted and will be accepting.

    @Eloisemcl: From what you've been saying here, and I may be wrong, it seems to me you were not offered a position/post but only a place on the panel for Dublin? As I understand panels you will be on standby should additional roles come up in the future or someone in the post moves on.

    To all the others, I can only say best of luck and hope it works out.

    Thanks for the information bluethunder, hopefully it works well for you, well done.

    That does seem to suggest that I get a move on looking elsewhere though.
