It's almost that time of year again, folks. I thought I'd get the ball rolling ahead of time. We know that the TSP will be opening again in mid-October so let's get a little discussion going in the lead up.
What do people expect to change? What do people expect to be the same? And lastly, will we all conquer the Judgement Test that took so many of us out last year?
Will be the first time I apply - can anyone currently on the programme offer any further insight? (things you didn't know about the programme before starting)
It opens the 3rd of october i think
I just want to be offered an HO role. Don't really care about getting onto the actual TSP tbh.
I got through to assessment for TSP18 but failed at that stage and they only offered band O roles this year to unsuccessful applicants that went to assessment which I declined as I'm already a HO. HMRC seem to be looking at capacity at present with some offices closing prior to moves to Regional Centres the redeployment pool is getting larger so simply hoping you might get offered a role if not accepted onto TSP might not happen the same as other campaigns.

Any time I'm getting impatient for a launch date I need to remember the wait times between stages. Puts things nicely in perspective, lol.
It's a long process and patience is needed between all stages as it's about 6 months in total. I was gutted to be told I hadn't got through as it had filled my head for so long!
I'll be applying again.
Made it to the AC and have bagged an O Band role from it (waiting for start date, still). I'm still worried bout the SJT and personality tests though. There desn't appear to be any consistency with them, based on the oes I've taken for variou roles.
Good luck to all
Hey, I came into HMRC off the back of TSP a couple of years ago as an O band but I’m currently on a TP for HO. The situational judgement test seems to be the bane of most applications, however I have found i tend to score higher if I have the competency framework in front of me too. Considering the correct answers will be based on the framework, it makes sense. I know a lot of application processes within the civil service are changing but unfortunately I think the SJT is here to stay! Good luck
