HMRC - Digital Forensic Vacancies (7) - London (£36K - £56K)

Post Posted: Wed May 28, 2014 1:15 pm

Just to clarify - I am not the contact for these vacancies nor for this organisation but I thought it may be useful to post links to the official ads as I have had a number of queries about them via email.

If the bitly link proves troublesome - a quick search on the website by Department for HMRC will do the trick.

Closing date June 17.

Regards

Hi Richard,

Thanks for putting up these posts.

Jobs look promising with a decent pay - I'm interested in Law Enforcement work and pay seems abit higher then most LE places:

- Higher Forensic Practitioner: £31,900 - £37,105 plus Base Tier London Allowance £4,686.00

- Senior Forensic Practitioner: £37,990 - £42,856 plus Upper Tier London Allowance £18,242.54

I've sent you a personal pm. Interested to hear about your experience there. Will defiantly be applying as I see the deadline is next week, 17th June.


Regards,

EC

Excuse my ignorance, but does the "allowance" mean that this amount is potentially added to the salary? I.e, the salary for the Higher Forensic Pactitioner would be at least £36586 (31900 + 4686).

If so, is that allowance for the Senior role a typo? Because it seems.. quite a lot? Smile

Hmmm, it covers a little bit more than "living costs" in London:
Higher (higher than whom, BTW? Shocked ):
Allowances
Criminal Investigation Directorate Attendance Allowance (Base Tier)

• Criminal Investigation Directorate Attendance Allowance (Base Tier)): Higher Forensic Practitioners are required to deliver flexible patterns of attendance to meet the varying demands of the work they will undertake. Details of the allowance and flexibility requirements are detailed below.

Base Tier London Allowance £4,686.00 (pensionable amount £2,890.00)

Flexibility 75 + changes per year
Unsocial Hours (20:00–23:00) 70 hours per year
Unsocial Hours (23:00–06:00) 75 Hours per year
Weekend Hours (Sat/Sun) 92 hours per year
Public holidays 18 hours per year
Additional Hours Not Applicable
On-call Not applicable


Senior (which is higher than higher, maybe it's highest Wink )
Allowances
• Criminal Investigation Directorate Attendance Allowance (Upper Tier): Senior Investigation officers are required to deliver flexible patterns of attendance to meet the varying demands of the work they will undertake. Details of the allowance and flexibility requirements are detailed below.

Upper Tier London Allowance £18,242.54 (pensionable amount £3,270.00)

Flexibility 75 + changes per year
Unsocial Hours (20:00–23:00) 100 hours per year
Antisocial Hours (23:00–06:00) 55 Hours per year
Weekend Hours (Sat/Sun) 80 hours per year
Public holidays 16 hours per year
Additional Hours 308
On-call 1 in 2


And the 23:00-06:00 are "Unsocial Hours" for the "Higher" but become "Antisocial Hours" for the "Senior".

For NO apparent reason:

Well the senior role has 308 "additional hours" - I wonder where they fall?

Mathematical calculation (which of course bears no connection whatsoever with fiscal/payroll/bureaucracy math):
37*50=1850
37,990/1850=20.54

4686/2890=~1.6215 <- ratio allowance/pensionable
3270*1.6215=5302.31 <- actual allowance
18,242.54-5302.31=12940,23 <- the rest
12940,23/308=42.01

Wherever/whenever they fall, they are seemingly payed "double rate".

These jobs need shipping outside of the London area to somewhere that doesn't need a London Allowance to help reduce the bill to the taxpayer...like to Yorkshire, perhaps... Wink
