As mega-deal with Capgemini and Fujitsu nears conclusion, department advertises for professional to lead management of contracts with up to 200 technology suppliers 

HM Revenue and Customs is offering an annual salary of close to £100,000 for a contract-management professional to oversee its engagements with a much wider range of suppliers as it nears the post-Aspire era.

The tax agency’s £10bn-plus IT outsourcing deal with Capgemini and Fujitsu, which was originally due to end in 2017, is now going through a phased migration, with all services due to be retendered or brought back in house by 2020. 

“HMRC has recently exited the Aspire contract for IT provision with commercial staff playing a leading role,” the department said. “In doing so, it has reached a negotiated position with incumbent suppliers and activity has been undertaken to source suppliers for newly defined elements of the bought-out services. New contracts will allow the department to take better advantage of digital innovations, and keep pace with digital and technology trends of the future.”

To help manage this newly diversified supplier landscape, HMRC is advertising a vacant position as assistant commercial director, IT contract management. The role, which will be based in Telford or London, comes with a salary of up to £95,950. 

The successful candidate will manage a team of about 10 contract managers, and will report into the head of commercial contract management. The IT contract chief will help manage a hundredfold increase in the organisation’s supply chain.

HMRC said: “You will play a key role in managing our supply base effectively through the IT transformation as HMRC continues to move away from the single biggest IT outsource deal in Europe, Aspire, to a supply chain of over 200 suppliers. You and your team will be closely involved in managing and supporting the ongoing transition to the new supplier environment.”

Applications are open until 16 April. Once candidates have been sifted, successful applicants will be invited to an assessment centre during the week commencing 7 May. Final panel interviews will take place the following week.
