    Since we don't start until the 8th, but we're salaried, does anyone know whether or not we will receive a full month's pay for September?

    Or will we receive about three weeks worth on a pro rata basis?

    You've answered your own question. You're not going to get paid a full month when you haven't worked a full month. *

    Thanks for the reply, has been different for me in other jobs.

    Is Civil Service Pension automatically enrolled on start or do you join at a later point?

    You'll get a letter in the post detailing the different types of pension they offer, and a form to fill out to say which one you want to go with. I only know this because I've had mine already.

    I don't know if Mego0448 is speaking from experience or making a sensible guess, but my current job (in state education, so not the same but similar in some ways) pays 1/12 of your salary on each pay day, right from the start. For example, my colleague started on 1st September and was paid a full 1/12 salary on 15h September. It might well be different in the Civil Service, but starting halfway through a pay month doesn't *necessarily* have to mean that you get paid pro rata for the first month. I've just emailed the mailbox about it, so will let you all know what their reply says.

    In HMRC it doesn't work like that. All pay is in arrears, so if you start mid way through a month your pay will be apportioned to take account that you didn't work a full month.

    You won't be paid for the first week. Those struggling can apply for a loan with hmrc to get them throughto the first day day.

    Reading last years mega thread I guess it'll still be a while until they get things done. I got that e-mail and am handing my documents in tomorrow in Nottingham. Did it take long when you handed yours in? Anything much else to do bar hand in copies of everything?

    Yeah I read through it too, oh well.

    Erm besides the university certificate or "award" letter make sure you have a passport style photograph of yourself. I thought my passport alone would be sufficient but it wasn't and I had to go and get some taken on the day haha. Didn't take long, without having to get the photos taken it would have took about 10 mins.

    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.
    OK thanks for the info. I haven't had that added to mine as they haven't given me an offer.

    Well done on getting the offer

    Hi there, I'm also in the same position. Does this mean that we will hear something further from them? ie a yes or a no?thanks
    They didn't mention that unfortunately, I like to think they would but more likely you'll probably only here something if they give you an offer.

    On a personal note I don't expect to hear anything back at the late stage as I put down I could work at any location. I would still accept it but you might want to have a contingency plan.

    Mega is correct - they'll apportion the first month out. Although, they'll do it as you didn't work 7 days of September so they'll take ur gross September wage divide it by 30 days and times it by 23 days
