That sucks. I haven't heard anything yet so hopefully no news is good news.

@Erdin, that's harsh, sorry to hear it. I got an email last week inviting me to Stage 3 this Friday. Seems to me they're doing another round of stage 3 assessments which can't have been part of the original plan. I can only assume that a significant number of people didn't manage to match their online test scores.

So have extra people been called back for tests in both Dublin and Cork? Still waiting to hear back from my assessment last week (Dublin)- but assuming it won't happen this week now if they're testing more people...

Just got an email to say that I'm going through to Stage 4. It's an assessment centre in the last two weeks in May.

Congrats. Any idea what is meant by assessment centre? Is it a group interview/written exercise?

In the booklet it says it may consist of a competitive interview, group exercises and written exercises. The email I got today didn't say anything else other than it would take place in the last 2 weeks of May.

Hello,

I also applied for this role but only just found this thread. I received an email telling me about the assessment day on May 22nd, anyone else get it? Just wondering if it's just the one assessment day or if they'll be holding assessments for many candidates over a number of days.

Never done anything like this and didn't think I'd make it passed the previous tests so now I really don't know what to expect!

Yeah, i've a date for the 23rd. I'm fairly certain there will be a number of days set for people. Interview I can handle but have never done a group exercise or report writing exercise, should be interesting.

Great to get this far, best of luck everyone.

Cheers Bluethunder, it is good to get this far. Those numeracy tests have been my downfall in the past. Interesting that you got called in for a repeat of Round 3, I wonder what the numbers are like overall?

Also, the application form asks for a summary of secondary school results...I'll be damned if I can actually recall those at this stage.

Best of luck anyway.

Mine is in Cork, sounds like there could be a bit of a wait to hear the outcome if people have assessments the following week. Anybody have their day in Cork on the week starting the 26th?
