About HM Revenue and Customs

Hero image for HM Revenue and Customs

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) plays a vital part in our society and economy.

We are the UK's tax and customs authority. Our purpose is to collect the money that pays for the country's public services and helps families and individuals with targeted financial support.

Our work funds schools and hospitals, builds roads and infrastructure and supports communities and the economy - so we need everyone to pay the tax that is legally due, no matter who they are.

Tax Specialist Programme

High-potential graduates who join our Tax Specialist Programme will get the chance to become part of a highly-trained group of tax professionals who tackle the most challenging aspects of tax work in HMRC.

The programme is designed to give you a broad insight into the range of the tax work HMRC undertakes. It's the perfect foundation for a wide-ranging career and offers the opportunity to find your way as you develop. HMRC will encourage and support you in exploring and developing your own particular skills and knowledge.

You'll learn to deal with complex tax cases, confidently negotiate with customers and their professional advisers, and lead and influence teams.

The programme is structured to identify and develop your potential, ensuring you're ready to take up a senior tax position when you complete the programme, which takes around 3 years.
