This is an exciting time to join an organisation that probably doesn't work how you'd imagine a government organisation would. Our blog tells you a bit more about what we do and how we do it!

We are undergoing a major transformation programme, which includes a major investment in digitisation. This means customers can do more for themselves online, in real time, on computers, tablets and smartphones therefore we are building a team of outstanding people who will create and run these new and improved technology services.

Our role sits within HMRC's Chief Digital & Information Group (CDIO) we're increasingly delivering in-house through our growing network of digital delivery centres - hi-tech, state-of-the-art facilities across the UK.

This is an exciting opportunity to join HMRC's Project Delivery Profession team where you will be supporting a large scale and radical transformation that will have a profound impact for both the customers and the staff.

Job description

HMRC has one of the largest IT estates ranging from data analytics platforms to complex legacy systems. The breadth, variety and complexity of these systems and business processes they support are on a scale rarely seen in other global organisations. We are responsible for the end to end delivery of all IT projects across HMRC. Within HMRC project managers work across the business and with other teams in CDIO to ensure that we deliver our projects on time, within budget and to sufficient quality.

This position will play a key role in delivering IT change that will take HMRCs complex IT estate towards a smaller set of strategic systems.

Your role will be to provide a Project management wrapper to multi-disciplinary agile teams, engaging with team members and stakeholders to enable a successful project delivery.

• Experience delivering small to medium scale technical and IT enabled business change projects against a backdrop of large scale organisational change.

• Experience of driving delivery.

• Understanding and ideally practical experience of both Agile and Waterfall methodologies.
