    They are for the O/HO recruitment and not for the TSP. All other HMRC job applications will score the competences out of 7. I think a few who have posted on this thread have applied for those vacancies.
    Cheers, I wasn't sure whether i had missed something on the portal.

    anyone else still here that passed the AC but put on the reserve list? starting to think its a distant hope now of getting on tsp! but also worried now of not being offered anything, yet seeing people who didnt even make it to AC getting offered officer jobs, doesnt seem fair!

    I think those that have been offered jobs so far have been offered them at O grade.

    I suspect those on the reserve list who don't get TSP posts will be offered HO grade roles from August (deadline for allocation of TSP posts).

    TSP folk, is it just me that hasn't heard anything from my assigned manager yet, or are others still in the dark as well?

    The last email I had from the central team in early June said that our details had been passed to managers, who would be in touch 'later in the month' to arrange welcome events etc.

    The "business learning manager" for where I've been placed called the other day.

    I'm actually annoyed that our prospective managers are supposed to be getting in contact before we've even been given formal offers. I know I'm not going to accept mine if it doesn't change and I've made that clear to the people dealing with recruitment, so what they're expecting me to say to any prospective manager I don't know.

    In any case you're not starting for another 2 months so I wouldn't worry about it.

    Is anyone in the same position as me?

    I took the tests passed but wasn't high enough for the assessment centre or reserve list.

    I was then told HMRC were looking to send out provisional offers for Officer roles and if I was interested. I replied and was told I should hear back end of May.

    It is now July and I have had no confirmation if they have received my correspondence or anything else.

    I sent a follow up email last week but still haven't heard anything back.

    In the exact same position - others earlier in the thread heard back next week (for other offices), but I've heard nothing, and was really hoping to be sorted with a job for graduation, but no such luck. Especially infuriating as I've had to sign on for Universal Credit today and explain this entire situation.

    I applied for Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds (and also applied for the Higher Officer role in a separate application and haven't heard anything back from that either) - I haven't followed up but if anyone has the telephone number, I'll give them a call.

    They emailed me last week about an Officer Role. The deadline to accept was today so perhaps there will be a second wave of offers later this week once they filter out the declines.

    I received an response to my email today, they advised me that I am actually on a reserve list. At least I have some closure now, thanks for your input Kenny , not holding much hope out for an offer. However I did state that I was willing to work in any location!Did you have to interview for the officer role Kenny?

    No interview, but they did say in the email you have to appear at one of their offices at some point and show them your degree certificate, DBS certificate etc.

    They've added an new job application on my civil service portal 'HMRC Band O Professional Programme 2016' with the same closing date as TSP (24 November 2015) with the status 'provisional offer'. If you look at the job advert it says there are 600 positions.

    For anyone on the TSP, did you receive emails from CSR asking for health declarations and personal references after having already sent them off?

    I sent both items off weeks ago and it appears they have lost them or not picked them out from the mailbox, either way it's quite frustrating.

    They've probably sent that email to everyone without checking. Do follow it up though.

    If I don't get an officer role this year i hope they run the o band professional program next year.

    Has anyone's job portal changed to showing TSP in current applications, with 'closed for applicants' in the application status?
