    My mistake, just reread the email - 37 hours per week mon-fri it says! I think the last part of the process went pretty quick, so maybe you won't be waiting too much longer.*
    Thats good being Monday to Friday. Don't fancy weekends myself. Hopefully not but i've mentally prepared myself for a 3 month wait! Been 8 months already. Where are you gonna be based? Think i heard most people are in Custom House until the big move

    Did you apply in the campaign that closed september last year? Yeah custom house, it'll be interesting to see where they move to. I went for a walk to custom house square while I was in town last week. The building looks so intimidating haha.*

    Hi. Custom House is in Belfast ans to be honest the role is extremely varied and being new myself I am not sure what it fully entails yet!
    All I can say is it seems challenging ane exciting and I have enjoyed it so far.

    Sorry my mistake, because there's a custom house office in London as well lol!
    So would the role involve a lot of travelling to tax payers site, data analysis or just checking tax payment figures in the office?

    Hey. I had a provisional offer for O Grade on 12 August. I read some people successful earlier in the year were sent a medical questionnaire. Were you sent one because I wasn't? I've literally heard nothing since 12 August. It just says checks are underway on the portal. Bit concerned to have heard nothing t

    Heya, nope I've not received anything yet. It's just a super long recruitment campaign it seems. A few friends in Child Maintenance got a medical questionnaire sent through but they were accepted for Cardiff and they seem to need staff more urgently than Belfast at the minute.

    Same for me.

    Provisional Offer for O grade in Belfast on 12th August, and nothing since then.

    This was from being on the reserve list since interview last year (HO/O positions, Closing date Sep 15, Interview Nov 15), got 556 the interview.

    Hopefully it wont be too much longer before we hear.
