CDIO (Chief Digital Information Office) is the IT division of HMRC, with 3000 staff working on government digital transformation projects. HMRC aims to be the most advanced tax authority in the world, developing platforms to make collection of tax simpler for everyone, therefore maximising revenue for public spending. We are made up of a number of delivery groups which each specialise on different projects, whilst also acting as one collaborative network of technology professionals. These include developers, testers, architects, product owners, business analysts, service managers and more!

We are recruiting for experienced IT professionals to join our Architecture & Innovation team to become Solutions Architects. You might be a developer, business analyst, project manager, or somebody else with transferrable skills and knowledge, looking for the next step in your career. We are looking for people with an understanding of IT architecture concepts and modern technology trends such as Cloud computing, AI and advanced analytics.

Your job will be to support development of technology roadmaps, working alongside senior architects in the team. With their supervision you will analyse business issues and translate these into technical designs. You will also identify any problems and make sure they are resolved. This will require good communications skills because you will work with technical and non-technical stakeholders across HMRC. There will be opportunities to work towards certifications such as TOGAF (The Open Group Architecture Framework) and CITP (Certified Information Technology Professional).

If you are interested, you will need to make an official application via the Civil Service Jobs website. You will be asked to describe your IT work experience and demonstrate an understanding of what is meant by IT architecture. You will also need to give examples of certain 'behaviours' that will make you suitable for the job
