TaxFactor - HMRC launches graduate recruitment drive

Click on to see bigger copy.

THE search begins this week for at least 120 graduates to join HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) as tax trainees.

The graduates will join a specially-designed 4 year Tax Professional Development Programme, gaining skills across all of HMRC‘s activities. This could include working with specialist teams investigating tax fraud, unravelling complex tax avoidance schemes, looking at the tax affairs of big businesses, while also gaining general business skills.

Last year nearly 16,000 applicants applied for 200 places on the programme including 1,320 applicants from across the North West.

HMRC is launching its recruitment drive with an advertising campaign and visits to more than 30 university careers fairs across the country.

Edward Troup, Tax Assurance Commissioner and second Permanent Secretary at HMRC, said:- “One day you could be working on criminal investigations or statistical forecasting, the next you might be challenging an avoidance scheme from a blue chip company. We are looking for graduates to join our 65,000 staff in the vital work of bringing in £476 billion in tax from 60 million taxpayers and 4.8 million businesses. What HMRC does has an impact on every single person and business in Britain and is vital to ensuring the UK has the money to fund public services."

Graduates can find out about the Tax Professional Development Programme at:- and at HMRC‘s Tax Professional Graduate Facebook page at:-

Applications close on 29 November 2013.
