HMRC is building a modern tax administration and runs the biggest digital operation in Government, providing digital services for 45 million individuals and 4.9 million business customers. Our digital programme is multi-award winning and the envy of other government organisations.

We are establishing a team of outstanding people who will build, run and supervise these new and improved technology services.
