Just applied, application form slightly different this year, need reference from previous TCO stint, I wonder would this cut the need for going to dublin for a 5 minute chat?

Likewise - read through it a couple of times and can't see where it mentions the reference. I'm just going to post it in anyway and give my candidate ID.

When I go back in to check the submitted application, questions i answered are showing up like I didn't eg country I selected Ireland but it looks like I didn't, same with the pension question? Anyone else have this issue?

Did you manage to get an actual reference or was it just a certificate of employment? (I have both). Absolutely nothing in the information booklet with reference to this! Going to email PAS tomorrow to confirm.

I seen that alright.

Last year I didn't have to go to Dublin for interview, if I remember correctly the application form did ask if I had been previously interviewed by PAS and worked as a TCO and to specify the Department and dates you worked. I was a TCO in
2015 so was interviewed last year in the same department I was assigned to.

Don't remember having to send or post previous references to PAS though.

I'm just wondering what number they will go to on the 2016 panel before starting the 2017 panel. I am still waiting from the 2016 panel and my number is 10 away from being called. Should I apply again?

I was just looking at that. I'm a TCO since 2014. Better get on that today! Hopefully no trips to Dublin.
