HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is one of the UK’s largest employers, with over 66,000 employees nationally. We are responsible for collecting taxes from individuals and businesses; the money we collect in tax pays for our public services and helps to fund things like schools and hospitals, build roads and public buildings, and support communities.
We also protect the workforce by enforcing minimum wage and we look after those in need by administering a range of benefits including child benefit, tax-free childcare, statutory pay and tax credits.
Reporting to the Director General CDIO, the FD CDIO will be responsible for overseeing all finance and accounting activity within a directorate of 140 staff. They will operate as a member of the CDIO’s senior leadership team and work closely with senior stakeholders across HMRC and beyond, providing sound advice on finance, governance, and risk. Pivotal in this is their role as a key member of the Chief Financial Officer’s finance network. Alongside this, the FD CDIO will play a key role in transformation activities, acting as a financial subject matter expert, as HMRC transitions into a more digital, more automated organisation.
This role will suit a qualified accountant (CCAB, CIMA, ACA, ACCA or equivalent) with a successful track record as a senior financial leader within an organisation of significant scale and complexity and experience of operating as part of a senior leadership team in a technology related business.
