    A lot of induction stuff. I think this is going to be a very interesting job!!!
    Have they explained the training process; will it be structured around set times or more of an 'on the job' thing?

    I'm just wondering if they will expect holidays to be taken at specific times.

    I too got the email for O grade in Belfast. Took me completely by surprise. I've been a temporary worker in the Child Maintenance Service since Jan '14; so glad to finally be a permanent civil servant and have some job security.

    I think it's more on the job. I haven't had full details yet.

    Completely taken by surprise after receiving a provisional offer for Belfast!!! Was sent an email asking if I would consider Bristol, Cardiff, Leeds, or London, and after hearing nothing since mid-May had given up 99% of hope! Just hope I pass these pre-employment things now! Almost a full year since applying!

    Hi, I got the same email! Can not believe it!
    I assume you applied to HO. Were you on the reserve lists? Did you not make it after the interview? What score did you score at the interview?

    did you apply last august? i dont understand how you have been offered the HO post when i scored 665 and was offered an officer post.

    the whole thing is very confusing with multiple recruitments.

    I assume this user has been appointed to an Officer role as there was no reserve list for HO. If I'm reading it right, they applied under the O/HO position that closed in Sept'15

    Did you receive an email asking about working in other locations?
    Yeah I received the email about other locations and now a provisional offer when I had lost all hope for that campaign. Really can't believe it.

    What is the fastest turnaround anyone has had for their checks?

    Thanks

    Hi Everyone,

    Quick question, four of my friends who have all had experience in HMRC at Higher Executive Officer grades or higher are looking to set up a company to help applicants with their applications to civil service jobs. For example, reviewing individual competencies, providing guidance on how to hit the higher marks and interview preparation and support.

    I Just wanted to know what people would want out of a service like that and would you use it?

    Sounds like you're opening yourself up for a whole load of trouble when people who pay for help don't get a job and want their money back.*

    Thanks for the feedback Mega,

    The value to the customers will be hands on support from four individuals who have all scored highly in competencies and have secured senior roles within the civil service.

    Whilst the company wouldn't guarantee anyone a job, it allows them access to strengthen their competencies by getting one to one support from individuals who have been through the process, have been involved in interviewing prospects and have done sifts on applications too.

    I would certainly hope they are not thinking about doing this as current civil servants, because that is definitely going to be frowned upon
