Give something back as you support the HMRC with major changes to the taxation regime for life insurance.

This is your chance to leave a lasting legacy as you support the implementation of the new tax regime for life insurance on 1 January 2013. You’ll use your significant commercial expertise to help us understand how businesses will be implementing this regime and advise on any risks, particularly avoidance potential. In the later half of 2012, the role will involve significant engagement with customers to provide assurance on proposed allocations and identify areas of concern to the successful implementation of the new regime. In short, this is a unique opportunity to shape the taxation regime for insurance and influence HMRC policies.

You’ll come to us with actuarial, asset management, or accounting, but not necessarily tax skills, gained in the life assurance industry or from professional practice, ideally in a number of organisations. It’s likely you’re currently in a senior role and looking to make a difference in this public sector opportunity. You’ll definitely bring a fundamental and detailed understanding of the underlying business function fulfilled by assets held by individual companies, and of how they are pooled and managed. Above all, you’ll be keen to share on your commercial knowledge, with the credibility and communication skills to deliver effective workshops, presentations, and individual coaching.

HMRC assesses and collects the bulk of UK tax revenue. We also help to support families and workers through the benefits and credits we administer. This is your chance to join a large and diverse organisation employing over 67,000 people offering a wide range of opportunities for talented professionals.
