wymondham as you are!
I've not got an interview date yet so you're a tad ahead of me!
How does all this work with references as my employer wont be too pleased with having to submit a reference without me seemingly doing anything about it if in a queue ..... not sure how far I'll get but does not look too good does it??

I didn't have to wait long for an interview date from passing the assesment, bout a week after i'd found out i'd passed. As for references i put on my application not to contact unless succesful, so don't know how they'd got about references if they know they cant offer you a position at mo. I heard bout the no jobs info from someone on this site who is already a serving PCSO who said she had meeting with her boss who said they wasn't taking anyone on at the mo or for the police which she was applying for, so she's a bit gutted too. My boss already knowes as i decided to be honest about the time i needed off work.What do you do at the mo? They cannot do much really(our bosses) you well with in your rights to find a career for yourself, surely they cant be hard on you?

no nothing yet - I'm wondering if this is where I'll hit a brick wall with an indefinate wait since there are very few positions - easier to hold up here rather than later I suppose?

Sounds like you've been around a bit in your past life (in a good way!!) - lots of good experience here I bet!! Mind you I deal with lots of odd/awkward solicitors so that should count!! :D
