HMRC is building a modern, digital tax administration and runs the biggest digital operation in Government, providing digital services for 45 million individuals and 4.9 million business customers. Our digital programme is multi-award winning and the envy of other government organisations.

This is an exciting time to join an organisation that probably doesn't work how you'd imagine a government organisation would! You would work in a customer group called CDIO (Chief Digital Information office) which will sit within the Finance Delivery Team and RAG team.
