HMRC is increasingly responsive to customer feedback and as a consequence is looking to recruit two new Deputy Directors who will ensure that HMRC strategies, policy and processes are designed from a customer centric perspective so that people and businesses have first-class multi channel services. We are increasingly offering self service options through business and personal tax accounts which must be responsive to customer needs in real time.

These roles have wide ranging briefs across HMRC and also work with other Government Departments with whom we have close links such as HM Treasury and the Department for Work & Pensions. They have high visibility at Executive Committee (ExCom) level, “punching above their weight” in terms of the challenge needed provide top quality exposure to our most senior leaders, and providing the opportunity to further develop your broad and marketable skill set.

The roles are still in development as the new CS&TD structure beds in. One of your key responsibilities will be to further refine these roles and/or the Organisation Listening and Culture and Capability Functions, including: how the team works collaboratively across the Customer Directorate, and the wider Department to build its capability and enhance its reputation within HMRC.
