Hello,

I applied to be a generic compliance caseworker, and passed the initial tests.

I got top 20% on maths and verbal reasoning, but top 45% on judgement. There were 30 places but I imagine these will be hotly contested.

How many applicants are there normally, and when would I be likely to hear back?

I would love any insights or information as to applying for this role as I would love to be successful in this application.

Thanks!

Hey! Have you been invited to an interview? What location did you apply for? And what was your SJT score if you don’t mind me asking?

Newcastle. It's unusual how they've sent an email about the interview rather than inviting to book slots and changing the portal.

I’ve found that usually the portal lags behind real time, I’m hoping no news is good news at this stage

I like your positivity and hope you are right. Seems like those already in the top 10 or 15 percent SJT have already had an email

For some reason the whole world is trying to work at HMRC. Just to give you a picture, the HO compliance caseworker role (Croydon) 2019 which had 30 posts advertised had 1,121 applications and 402 on the reserve list. I waited 15 months on the reserve list only to get kicked off it

The Croydon are is one of the most densely populated places in the UK so that might have something to do with those vast numbers. I think these roles will be hotly contested throughout the country but perhaps not to that extent.

It's a competitive world eh! I wonder how many they'd interview for 30 posts, that'll determine where the bar is set for the SJT test.

Hi, I got invited to interview on Friday 12th March there.

I also got 84% for the SJT, although I think the pass mark varies by location. Fingers crossed you hear back soon!
