HMRC AO pre-employment checks watch


    Customer Service Consultant

    (Original post by cookie_crumble)
    Hey, I got my offer and will be starting end of February. Got the call about half hour ago. I didn't get an email at all telling me my checks have been completed though, like some people did. If you haven't been contacted yet, you soon will be. Keep your phone glued to your hands! Hang in there
    Hi when they called you did it come through with a contact number or a withheld nuber I'm curious as I've receiving withheld numbers and I've been at work

    Hi just wondered if anyone was placed on a reserve list with Hmrc for ao position and then recruited?

    I've recently been placed in a reserve list saying I've reached the required standard but cannot offer position immediately. And will be on reserve list for 6 months.

    I was put on a reserve list in December, then in March I received a provisional offer

    I am based in Manchester and I am also a part of the HMRC email waiting game.
    It's SO frustrating !
    I applied for the 044R AO position via the Civil Service website back in December 2016 and I had an interview at the beginning of January 2017.
    They then emailed to say that there was an extended interviewing period and that I would have to wait longer for the outcome.
    I was told I had passed the interview in February and that they would be back in touch soon with either a provisional offer or I would be put on a reserve list.
    After what felt like an eternity I was put on the reserve list.
    Then a week later I was given a provisional offer !
    HURRAH !!!
    I accepted the provisional offer just before the recent Easter bank holiday.
    And that's it. I've heard nothing more.
    I'm waiting for some paperwork to fill in now I think for Pre-Employment Checks.
    Is it normal to have to wait for this paperwork ?
    Also, what is this portal that everyone mentions ? Can I set one up and view my progress ?
    Is anyone else at this stage in Manchester ?

    Yes it's normal

    Have you heard anything back yet?
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
