Vacancy Description

As an Independent Advisor you will play an important role in safeguarding the administration of the tax system and will support good practice in HMRC’s use of its powers and safeguards.  You will provide sound judgement, drawing on your professional and expert experience to enrich the deliberations of the Committee and strengthen the advice it provides.

You can expect to provide input and advice on a broad collection of areas, ranging from the impact of modernising the tax system on vulnerable groups, the sharing of, and use of, customer data, the implementation of government policy and customer safeguards through to HMRC’s use of its powers.  For example, the Committee might consider issues such as the use of voice biometrics to support better customer services, the consequences of HMRC going paperless for particular groups of customers, or how to improve the experience for particular customer groups where trust has broken down.

You will be an expert in your field and provide specialist knowledge – drawing on your expertise to support the Committee in its work, and ultimately in shaping HMRC by providing recommendations to existing governance and decision-making bodies.

HMRC will include the details of the Independent Advisors and the work of the Committee in our annual report.
