Squad 54 started two weeks ago. Have heard any other squads have been put on hold until the next promotions process is completed and more retirements occur. Up 10-12 firies on all shifts with another 24 from the current squad coming online in May. A liberal government won’t let the MFS hold onto any more surplus firies.

Anyone know where things are at these days? When does the next squad start or when they are interviewing next?
Thanks

Keep a look out if you got the “Stay fit” letter.
I haven’t received anything yet, but my friend just received an email saying they are no longer in the “Stay fit” pool.

I got a letter saying my application is not progressing today too. At the very least I can stop putting alternatives on hold now!

Are you allowed to reapply when (if) they reopen applications mid this year as previously advised they would?

I too got an email saying my application will not be progressed, they specifically state this result remains valid for 2 years and will expire in July 2020 at which time I can reapply again.

So even if they do reopen applications this year those of us receiving this email are ineligible to reapply.

Sorry to hear guys.
I'm in the 'stay fit' pool and still haven't received anything.
Not sure if that's a good thing or not!

You may be in numbers for 3rd squad depending on how many suitable applicants they get in July......

Is there a 2nd squad scheduled to start after the completion of the 1st squad, which should be finishing in early May?

Congrats to the first squad. Second squad must be starting soon. Has anyone been notified for the 3rd or are they going to start PAT1's again? Any rumours? How many are in the keep fit still?

Second recruit course will be kicking off next week from what I hear.
Good luck to all the crew in that!

I am still in the 'Stay Fit' pool. Fingers are still very crossed!

Apparently the recent cull of the "keep fit" pool was quite significant, but not sure how many people before or still left after the cull?

Friday’s media announcement on the MFS website states they are looking to recruit again in the second half of the year.

Rumour is only for applicants who didn't apply last time.

Thats cool mate. I hope whoever is left in the running gets a good crack at it before the next recruitment drive. When you did your PAT1 did it stop at 9.6 or did it keep playing?

Has anyone else got interviews?

PAT 1 stops at 9.6.

Assume these upcoming interviews are for the 3rd Squad?

Anybody got an idea how many are left in the "Keep Fit" pool?
