    CSR/159/16
    On one hand I'm delighted for you, well done

    On the other hand you've just crushed all my hopes of getting feedback on my interview for this years campaign any time soon

    I can cope with being put on the reserve list, at least I know where I stand then! Something would be better than the current nothing

    Thanks for that. My one is London and was hoping that surely it wouldn't make a difference on when the results are coming out based on what location you have applied for. I was told on Friday that results were coming out this week so hopefully not long to wait now.

    Hi all,

    Spoken to a colleague who was on the panel....had my score checked and confirmed it was the score I got for my interview and confirmed 4 was the pass mark.

    Not going to celebrate too soon! Still holding tight until that email confirms the real deal!

    She also mentioned there is hardly many that will be on the reserve list....sooo hoping the process to be smooth....well smoother!

    Internal candidates will find out earlier compared to external which should be around the 15th/16th....

    What location did you apply for? And what 3 scores did you get if you don't mind me asking?

    15th/16th sounds similar to what I was told for external candidates so let's hope they stick to this!

    Also do you know why there is to be so little on the reserve list? (I.e. Is it because people haven't met the scores required or because there are enough jobs to place all successful applicants?)

    Sorry for all the questions! X

    Those were really relevant questions and also just to let you know and i'm pretty sure you are already aware that there are two HO TAX caseworker jobs being advertised one is external 1000 jobs and the other internal which both have deadline dates for next week. September 13th and September 16th. So now its a dilemma over whether to submit those applications as there is no certainty the results of the June application would have come through by then. I guess it will have to be a case of "better to be safe than sorry".

    Forgive me for asking this silly question but how I check for internal vacancies? I started as a O a few weeks ago and people have said there are internal HO vacancies available. But when I check the jobs portal it only comes up with the roles advertised externally. Any help would be much appreciated.
