    Does anyone have a contact number for CSR?

    I received an email this morning saying my application has been withdrawn for failing to provide further information. They asked me for my passport last wednesday, and i took it to them in person on the thursday so not sure what has happened here.
    I think that would just about tip me over the edge!! I think there was a number earlier in the posts!!

    i've tried all the numbers I can find online and no-one is answering. I've emailed a couple of different email addresses but they seem to take their time replying to emails.

    Is anybody else still stuck on the reserve list for this??? I received an email in May asking if I still would be interested to take up a post in my first preference of Belfast if it were to become available. And also if I would be willing to take up a post in either Bristol, Cardiff, Leeds, or London. The email also stated that information about further instructions would be sent a the end of the month. I emailed at the beginning of June and was told that no further updates were currently available. I still haven't heard a thing! Is anybody else on this same boat? For it's driving me bonkers! :-(

    Yes me for Liverpool. I'm not hopeful anybody will be recruited off the reserve list for Liverpool - there were only 4 vacancies to start off with.

    My first preference was Belfast, then Newcastle, and Liverpool. I wish they could at least change the status on the website to rejected or something! It has started taking over my life, this nonsense! How did you score in your interview? I had 5, 5, 5. Actually feel like just withdrawing my application altogether and having a normal life back!

    Congrstulations! Well done! :-) I had my interview in November, and have been on the reserve list since December. I did receive an email last month to ask if I was still interested in a post in my preferred location if it were to become available. And also if I would be willing to take a post in Bristol, Cardiff, Leeds, or London. I said I woud go to any of them but London. Email also said that information about further steps would be sent out later in the month. Nothing yet, and it's now on the brink of July. Losingn hope to be honest! :-( How did you score in your interview if you don'r mind me asking? :-)

    How do you know there were only 4 for Liverpool? I'm going through pre-employment checks for there and I would say I gave a fairly average interview for a HEO, so I expected that I had an offer as they were taking on quite a few?

    This just makes me worry again that they are taking me on for Bootle, not Liverpool.

    Most of you are lucky to have had or be hearing about offers! Lol. I've heard nothing from mid-May
    Beginning to panic! :-(

    we applied for the recruitment campaign (September 2015) just before your one in February 2016 and some interesting documention was published.*

    https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/reque...20Donnelly.pdf

    I assume it was the Liverpool location that got the personal tax business line as the numbers all fit in. But there was easy 500 plus Interviews in Liverpool for like 5 jobs hahah.*

    Dagoro even scored 7's and only made the reserve list*

    I had Belfast first, Newcastle second, and Liverpool third, but they sent me an email 12th May. Complete waffle if you ask my opinion....asked me firstly if I would still be interested in a position in my preferred location were it to become available. Then asked if I would be willing to consider taking up a post in either Bristol, Cardiff, Leeds, or London, as they were in the process of provisionally offering O grades. I said yes to everywhere except London. Email also said I would receive information about further steps later in the month. That was May, and we are now as good as into July, so I guess it's history. Lol.

    So will this be our starting salary? Not sure why they advertised a salary range when payscale progression is frozen in the civil service. Or is starting salary negotiable to any degree?
    I'm pretty sure earlier in this thread that it was made clear that the starting salary is just over £29,000 and this is frozen, capped at 1% increase and is non-negotiable.
