Firstly I do apologize if this is a re-post. I did look through other threads on Tax Professional Caseworker job, however I was unable locate my querry in there. Thanks
I applied for Fast Stream and was unsuccessful, however I have received a provisional offer for the post of grade O Tax Professional Caseworker as an EO.
I wonder if anyone here has an idea of how different the career progression is in this case as compared to joining through fast stream or TSP? I believe the fast streamers start a grade higher as HEO, but are the prospects after that good or does it mean to keep reapplying to fast stream and TSP again for better career progression?

If you are very good there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to advance your career starting as an EO. You can apply for promotions and possibly progress quite quickly. Also if you take the role there is still nothing stopping you from applying for Fast Stream and TSP again.
Obviously progression would most likely be quicker with Fast Stream or TSP, but there is no guarantee that you would ever succeed on joining the schemes. My advice is that if you want a career with the Civil Service, then take the job, try and work your way up, and keep applying for Fast Stream and TSP anyway.
