HMRC searches for cloud IT director
HMRC is seeking a deputy IT director for cloud services to help implement cloud infrastructure across the department, nine months after failing to recruit for a more senior cloud transformation role.

The role currently being advertised is part of a new cloud delivery group within HMRC, which will be accountable for all IT infrastructure services and hardware for the department’s IT.
The position is offered at a salary of up to £100,000 and the recruit will be responsible for migration onto the HMRC cloud platforms.
They will report to the director of development, testing and operations and will line manage a team of around 50 staff.
The recruitment drive follows one in autumn last year, when the department was looking for a cloud transformation director to deliver change at HMRC “on a massive scale”. It was advertised with a salary of more than £160,000.
However, an HMRC spokesman confirmed to PublicTechnology that this position was never filled.
But, he added, the more senior role was part of a wider digital and information reorganisation within the department and was not part of the cloud delivery group that the deputy director will lead.
Meanwhile, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office is seeking a head of IT delivery, also advertised at £100,000, to oversee the FCO’s live service and its relationship with IT suppliers and contractors.
The closing date for the HMRC role is 11 July, and the FCO role is 4 July.
