Back in December 2014, just after I joined HMRC, my first post on here was to announce digital jobs on offer. I’m excited to be posting again with news on jobs: this time to announce vacancies in both our London and Newcastle Digital Centres.
At HMRC we aren’t just talking about digital transformation - we’re doing it. Our digital teams have already:
- built the Business Tax Account - making tax easier for over 2.6m businesses so far
- launched the Personal Tax Account - which will enable 10m individuals to access their records and take greater control of their tax affairs by April 2016
- transformed tax credits renewals this year - with over 600,000 people able to renew online so far, making digital the channel of choice for the first time.
Our digital operation is going from strength to strength but we need more talented digital specialists so we can do all of the things we’ve planned to do. Mark Dearnley’s most recent post will give you an idea of some of what’s in store.
Why come and ‘do digital’ at HMRC?
When Brigid McBride spoke at the London Tech Week event recently she summed it up for me. She said “It's the scale of things you get to do in government that you really don’t get to do elsewhere.” We are undergoing a major transformation programme, which includes a £200 million investment in digitisation, so customers can do more for themselves online and in real time. Our services will be available on computers, tablets and smartphones, bringing HMRC bang up to date, in line with banks and other large customer operations.
Take a look at the roles on offer and please get in touch with the named vacancy holder for each post if you want to know more. The closing date for all of these vacancies is 7 August 2015.
