    Hi Everyone,

    Four of my friends who all have experience working in HMRC at Higher Executive Officer grades or higher are looking to set up a company to help applicants with applications to Civil Service Jobs. For example, reviewing individual competencies, providing guidance on how to hit the higher marks and interview preparation and support.

    I wanted to know what people would want out of a service like this, would you use it and how much would you want to pay for practical support?

    Have any of the four worked in recruitment?

    I would do it if I was applying for the fast stream.

    Unless the four friends were on the recruitment side of things, I doubt this would offer you much value above what you can already get for free elsewhere.
