I’m Mark Dearnley, and I’m HMRC’s Chief Digital and Information Officer. I’m responsible for leading HMRC’s ambitious plans to digitalise its business.
I'm delighted that we have just announced that we are opening our first Digital Delivery Centre in Newcastle. This is the beginning of our journey to transform online and digital services to make it simpler faster and more convenient for everyone to manage their tax affairs online.
To help me I am looking for 50 world-class technologists, apprentices and graduates, as well as people who have the skills and hands on experience to design, test and build amazing digital services for UK citizens.
Services that will rival private sector companies for ease of navigation and impact. Services that all allow our customers to connect with us quickly and manage their tax affairs at a time that suits them, using smart phones, tablets and laptops, as well as more traditional contact routes. Services that will put us at the cutting edge of digital development and data management.
HMRC has the one of the biggest data stores and processes a staggering 974 million customer transactions a year. If you are up for the challenge, have the skills and want to make a difference to one of the biggest transactional services in government find out more here.
