Hi,
How long do you think i should wait to find out if a caretaker position i went for was successful or not, the closing date was the 9th. Really keeping my fingers crossed as it's a local school and jobs in my town are few and far between.

If the closing date was the 9th, they may still be short listing. Give it the rest of this week. And maybe call them on Monday or Tuesday.

How long is a piece of string? It's not something anyone can answer. I had my interview in the morning and was offered the job on the same afternoon but somebody else might have to wait a week or so. It depends on a whole host of things mate. All you can do is wait for them to contact you. Good luck.

Don't give up hope yet, it will depend on how many applicants there are to go through and schools are busy places all year round. I would get in touch early next week if you haven't heard anything.

Snap, same as you, i was so taken aback by the quickness of it all i could hardley speek, the HT said "Do you want the job" and i just blurted out "I do, i do, sorry you took me by suprise", i knew they had another candidate to see that day and that one already seen had more experiance than me but he was apparently a know all so i found out afterwards.

When I was acting schoolkeeper, my HT said to me: What happens if you don’t get the post?

My reply: If the new schoolkeeper does as he is told, he should be all right.

I got the post as schoolkeeper.

Good luck and keep us posted! :)

I remember my interview and was taken aback when there were 8 of us waiting in the Reception for a mass interview. Very awkward at first, but we were all chatting after some time, despite all secretly praying that we'd be the ones to get the job!
