    that's really unlucky. Looks like they want 6 and 7s. When 4s were normally enough.

    I got same email. The external campaign is run by manpower assessors. *They could assess differently. However for AOS and Os how can they be expected to score 6 and 7. It's very difficult. Unless a manager or a grade 7 writes them out for you. The whole process is flawed.*

    It's strange as the were 1000 vacancies everyone who scored 4 and above should have been progressed.For a higher cut off to be required either means the are over 3000 successful applicants at the sift stage or the number of vacancies required are much less than advertised.

    I have this theory that departments prefer external candidates so a higher criteria is applied to internal applicants.

    I'm fairly sure there's been well in excess of 5000 apply. So a higher cut off point is probably needed. I think with the external campaign your test scores will be what counts as only the top scoring test scores are took through to the competency markings. *

    So far I've not had much luck. Scored 1 in feb, 2 in June. So hoping for an improvement with the external one! We should hear back on the 10th October for that one.*

    Has anybody applied via Manpower? I struggled with the tests, I'm not mathematically inept or anything but the length of time to get through the questions seemed so short! I'm gutted because I really did put some effort into my statement and thought I'd waltz the tests. WRONG!

    I thought the time was short to, but we don't know what the pass rate will be.

    One of my colleagues told me there are discounts available on gym memberships which I was unaware of but I don't know the details.

    They introduced something a few weeks ago called mylifestyle which is a bit like quidco for Hmrc staff. Discounts with loads of retailers, cheaper theatre, amusement park tickets etc

    I also know for Leeds there's an agreement with Metro (local transport authority) to offer discounted season tickets for bus/rail. Not sure how much cheaper but seeing as you would save anyway buying an annual season ticket it becomes cheaper still with this deal. You can also get a season ticket loan from HMRC to pay for it.
