    It's for Cardiff.

    Nope, no uplift mentioned :-(
    Hi, may I ask how you scored on the interview? I'm just curious because I'm sure I read previously that the take on people in order of performance, just wondering if that's true in reality.

    Sure I have heard nothing lol don't think scores count for much the way this is working!
    Sorry deltaguy thought you said you had had your formal offer! Maybe not then! I heard that was how it worked! Don't think there's a set pattern or process to this is there lol

    Mine will probably be VAT (after discussions with manager) and based at Trinity Bridge House, are you starting on 28th as well?
    Are you internal then? I'm still at 'provisional offer ' stage!! Anxiously awaiting the next step!!

    For those who have received formal offers, what are your notice periods? Are you all able to start on the 28th or will you be negotiating?

    Escapalda - Was stratford your preferred location and they've put you in Croydon?
    If Stratford was given as an option I would have definitely put down stratford as my first choice. It might have just said London and not broken it down into Stratford and Croydon. Just hope its only for first 12 weeks. I'm starting on 28.11.16

    Absolutely in the same boat as you. Even had my interview in Stratford Jubilee House.I have been asking around and was told to accept the offer initially and then to kick up a fuss with new manager saying it will take over 1 hour and 20 mins travelling everyday.

    Exactly! I told them throughout the process that I wouldn't mind any location by Croydon and yet I'm stuck in Croydon. I know someone whose working there already and apparently after a few weeks you can tell them that you wanna do 2/3 days work from home and then come in for the other days which isn't bad but still would prefer somewhere closer.

    Congrats to everyone so far. Good to know I was wrong.

    Regarding working hours, everythi.g is computer based e-learning. You have flexi time so can start whenever you want, as long as you average 7 hours and 24 minutes.

    Edit: E&C is huge. You could be doing anything. Your email will have more informaion about the area yyou go in.

    I literally live next door to the Stratford office - I couldn't be any closer if I tried! It makes sense to place me there and this is the only location I put down on the application form. But I heard there's not many places there for new starters and I may be placed in Croydon. It would be really inconvenient as I'd walk past Jubilee House every day.

    My email didnt say anything apart from enforcement and compliance.i currently work in that department already but not in tax and in custom house. But i know e&c is absolutely huge. If i worked 2-3 days from home that would soften the blow somewhat.

    Study from home is perfectly acceptable. Work however isn't anywhere near as likely in most tax professions, though I believe sone like VAT are onlyyou in, the office 1-2 days a week at the moment.

    Hi I've had an offer for the 28/11 for Bootle, but I have a holiday for that week :dong:.

    Also, has anyone found that the offer email mentions bringing a form on the first day which is attached, but it's not been attached?
