Our Compliance Caseworkers work with taxpayers to make sure that the right amount of tax is collected.

What does the role involve?

As a desk-based Compliance Caseworker within Campaigns and Projects (C&P), you will be at the forefront of delivering a high volume of compliance cases. These will relate to a variety of targeted compliance projects.

Over time, you’ll develop and build on your skills and knowledge across a wide range of taxes and risks, whilst being supported by helpful colleagues who are experts in compliance casework.

You’ll be dealing with non-compliance through customer interaction using letters, email, webchat and phone calls. Tasks include challenging customers in telephone interviews, identifying compliance risks and performing any intervention activity required.

One of my favourite things about my job is the team of people I get to work with every day. We all worked in different sectors before this, so we’ve developed a range of skills and knowledge that we share with one another.
