    Hi

    I recently had an interview with the DWP and received an email stating that I've reached the required standard but they're unable to offer me a job immediately and have been placed on a reserve list for 12 months.

    My question is does anyone have any experience of this reserve list and have ended up being posted? How long did you have to wait? Is there any way of me finding out my place?

    Thanks x

    I've been on a reserve list for HMRC since January. They won't tell you your place on the list. Although I don't feel very hopeful, other people have made quite positive comments about being recruited from a reserve list. Good luck.
