HMRC launches graduate recruitment drive


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 four-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.

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