Industrial Placements 2021

Applications to join us in September 2021 are OPEN until 15 January

Have you considered doing an Industrial Placement? If you're currently studying towards an IT, computer science, design/web design, business, or for some of our placements, a psychology or data science degree we'd be keen to hear from you.

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to develop your skills and business knowledge before heading back to university to complete your degree.

You’ll be encouraged to ask questions, explore new approaches and develop yourself as a valued member of the HMRC Digital team.
