Vacancy details

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) currently has exciting and challenging opportunities for experienced commercial lawyers to join their commercial teams in Manchester and London.

In recent years, commercial work in HMRC has increased in significance and become even more high profile. Commercial capability is a priority across government and HMRC is going through significant IT and estates transformation. HMRC commercial lawyers advise on some of the most high profile, high value and complex public procurement and contractual commercial legal issues within government, which makes this a really exciting time to join HMRC’s legal team.

The Programmes team provides legal support to HMRC’s largest transformation programmes including ‘Columbus’ (IT) and ‘Ruby’ (Estates); and their Corporate team advises on the department’s day to day IT, estates, banking and general commercial operations, including all aspects of public procurement, commercial contracts, intellectual property rights, state aid, contract and supplier management and disputes resolution. Each team has lawyers based in both Manchester and London.
