I had the same situation as Roberto - waiting to hear news of the ballot and also news from a job interview. Got a no from both.

Actually, the email from VLM came through while I was on the phone to the other! Luckily I had already checked online, so was expecting it.

Seventh year of entering the ballot for me and not got in yet. To be honest, the only reason I want to do it is because they won't let me!

Sorry to hear that Lollipop. I got my job rejection yesterday, so my prediction of a rubbish week was correct. I was “appointable” for the second interview in a row where they didn’t appoint me. But I’m on the reserve list as there may be more posts in a couple of months.
