    Manpower is doing the pre employment checks. I am hopeful that they will be efficient. They have given a timescale of 20 working days to complete. I haven't been approached by them yet, only sent off references etc after clicking next stage.

    Are they doing the pre-employment checks of those from the December 2015 campaign?

    Unlikely tbh.... Manpower should be good. Btw the next stage references aren't looked at because they've outsourced the checks, the only reason you have to click next stage and compete them is because you external.

    Can anyone else hazard a guess at all as to whether it's likely that manpower will be conducting the TSP programme application this year, my guess is they won't. I just can't see them outsourcing the official TSP/4 year programme to a company like Manpower.

    Just quick question to those who applied for June 2016 Vacancy.

    I believe there were four competencies tested at the interview stage.

    Did you get asked for seprate scenario based questions ?

    The internal one had four competencies I think...

    The external one which was 1320 only had 3, one of which was tested through the responses for the other two, so only two questions were asked.

    Thanks, i am internal for the current 042R preparing for the interview in case i get through on the sift.

    Just wondering, if i should expect four separate scenario questions or three while the last competency gets judged on the response to other 3.

    I think you should expect four separate questions, I don't think they will have a scenario though...e.g tell me about a time when you have worked in a team to manage a quality piece of work (managing a quality service), something similar to that for each one I think.

    Cheers, just being ready as Hmrc is moving Fast compared to the last exercises.
    I applied on the closing day 13th September and sift results should be out by 23rd September.Interview apparently staring 30th September for 2 weeks.
    With highest scoring applicants in the interview to be in post by November 2016.

    I'm equally excited. If they post results on schedule and i dont make it to interview, I'll have time to edit my competencies and apply for the external one.

    Am I missing something here? When I checked on manpower for HO positions they said they weren't opening till the 19th. Is this for a previous internal campaign?

    Kk,that's a good plan.
    Just hoping the one competency is marked on the sift.

    It is kinda confusing the are two exercises running .I think with same reference numbers (042 R),one internal stage 3 civil service wide that closed on the 13 September and another external due to open on 19th.
