Vacancy information

Help shape the country’s tax laws and lead the fight against tax avoidance.

We are responsible for advising Treasury ministers and HMRC on tax law. We work closely with Treasury and HMRC colleagues in developing policy and on proposals for the Budget and Autumn Statement. We also implement policy through primary and secondary legislation, principally the annual Finance Bill.

We have vacancies for lawyers to undertake both policy and operational advisory work (which includes drafting legislation) and litigation work.

Applications are welcomed from qualified lawyers irrespective of post qualification experience.

On Thursday 14 January 2016 at 6.45 pm, we will be hosting an open evening at our offices in central London. At this event, you will be able to talk to our lawyers to find out more about what it is like to work as a lawyer in HMRC. If you would like to attend this event, please send an email to Iain McGavin containing your name and daytime telephone number.
