Did anyone apply for this job at HMRC?

I'm just glad I got through on the 3 tests and a bit surprised the application form is just CV - no statement or behaviours?

I applied (and got) a job with HMRC. They use your scores on the three tests to sift your application as the tests all have pass marks. As for your CV, they don't score it or use it to sift, it's just there to see what you've previously done in terms of employment.

They'll assess the strengths and behaviours at interview stage. As for not having to do them at application stage, every department is different and has different application requirements.

Are you currently working at HMRC? If so, how is it?

I've got an email with an invite to a pre-recorded strengths interview!

I'm not currently working for HMRC but I start in January. I have heard form others that HMRC is good to work for.

Oh nice, when is it? They'll assess both strengths and behaviours during the interview so I would advise looking at the job description to see what behaviours they'll be assessing and preparing flash cards (not a script) with your example for each behaviour on(you get 4 minutes from my experience of pre recorded interviews). As for strengths, you can't prepare for those questions and you just have to run with whatever comes to mind as you only have a couple of minutes to answer strength questions.

Good luck with your interview
