Security Profession

“I’m passionate about HMRC Security as a great place to work, where people can develop fulfilling careers and be part of an inclusive team. I want to ensure everyone has the opportunity to make the most of being part of the Government Security Profession. We offer a broad spectrum of work across cyber, physical and personnel security as well as cross cutting areas such as risk management and incident management.”

Who we are

HMRC plays a crucial role in the UK economy and holds valuable data on UK taxpayers. Successful attacks on HMRC could prevent the flow of money or the loss of citizen’s data so it’s essential that our Security Team protect HMRC from security risk and take a proactive approach to defending against security incidents.

We encourage people of all backgrounds, all cultures, all experiences; all keen to protect the UK, to come and join our inclusive security community.

What we do

The Government is an attractive target for a broad range of threat actors, from hostile states to criminals and we know that they are increasingly active and adaptive.

We need to be able to respond successfully. Our professionals play a vital role in overcoming
challenges faced every day, like preventing attempts to steal, disrupt or destroy the resources in our care. We also work with colleagues in other professions to help achieve our mission.
