    Hi! It's crazy how long it all takes, isn't it?! It's the not knowing that's annoying! I emailed them yesterday to ask if there was any update on pre-employment checks, and they said that my pack had been sent to the recruitment team and they would update me via email/my online account, but didnt say when that would be!
    It's so annoying having to wait around 😔

    Me pre employment checks for AO grade took two weeks.

    It's only these latest O/HO grade Caseworker campaigns that are taking an age because it's such a national recruitment.

    So are you currently working in Liverpool? 😊 Are you enjoying it? Do you know what the pre-employment checks consist of? Do they get your references etc then?

    Yeah I'm just waiting for the EO position. Good luck for the DWP...

    I'm enjoying the job; have to go the gym slightly more because it's a desk job and I enjoy being active. But that's most things in life I guess :P

    Pre employment checks consists of them sending away for a DBS check, you could always call DBS to see if an application has been started. That's what I done when I got desperate! Ha! And then they just look into the HMRC PAYE system to see your job history matches what you said on the application process. Oh, and you fill in a health form and character declaration form.

    Hey, I have also been out on the reserve list for a position in the tax office located in Liverpool and heard about two available shifts at the end of January and to state my preference. Haven't heard anything back so assume I'm not high up enough on the list. Just really hope I get to hear something soon. Anyone have any idea how often they usually take people on from the reserve list? Cheers

    Hi all. I was wondering if anyone else is in my situation. I've applied in September 2016 through Manpower , but I wasn't in the top scoring applicants in my location ( Croydon ); therefore my application was placed on hold. I received a couple of emails in the mean time, when last week I got an email saying that I will be invited to the interview in April; also that they will be sending shortly some guidance... That was the last email and I'm still waiting...
    Is anyone else in my situation ?
    And there is one more thing I really wanna ask you guys... I'm from Romania, so therefore I do not know what chances do I really have ... I mean do you know anybody from Romania that works for HMRC ? I've been here for 7 years and not planning to ever leave , but I think this job however is way too much for me ( not because I'm not smart enough or anything like that , but because of the hate against immigrants and the brexit situation).

    Should I hope or should I really be realistic...
