allocation (ECA job role) and
approximate time frames for placing  
these individuals into roles.
Unfortunately we are unable to give
  approximate time frames as to how
long individuals wait to be placed
into roles - it is dependent on a
number of factors e.g. which areas
they have listed as preferences
versus which areas we have vacancies
in etc. All efforts are however made
to place candidates into suitable
posts as quickly as appropriate
opportunities arise.

 

If you are a member of staff we would
recommend you contact our HR
Department if you have any concerns
regarding the progress of post

looked into on an individual basis.
