The award, voted for by students, acknowledges the popularity of HMRC’s Tax Professional Development Programme, which recruits graduates to train for four years to become tax professionals.

Edward Troup, Tax Assurance Commissioner and second Permanent Secretary, said;

This award is a real testament to the hard work and dedication of the team.

Last year we received nearly 16,000 applications and recruited a total of 200 tax professionals. There is never a dull day at HMRC, and we think this is what attracts such large numbers of applicants each year.

Applications for the Tax Professional Development Program re-open in September. You can find out more about the scheme via the HMRC Graduates Facebook page.
