Four jobs are available at associate delivery manager level, while 13 are being advertised at the next step up – IT delivery manager. Six senior IT delivery manager posts are currently vacant, as is one role as a lead delivery manager.

This latter position comes with an annual pay packet of up to £69,500, while salaries for the association delivery manager jobs begin at £30,260.

In a blog post, Paul Shreeve – a senior IT delivery manager at HMRC – said that he and his colleagues perform “extremely varied” work. 

“We're responsible for the project management of work which centres around the large and complex IT change within the vast HMRC IT estate,” he said. “This can be anything from digital projects where we update a legacy tax regime to bring it into the 21st century, to adding functionality and capability to large, back-end IT services.”

He added: “Being an IT delivery manager means having a good understanding of, and opportunities to develop, stakeholder management, commercial and contract management, risk and issue identification and mitigation, supplier management and many other transferable skills.”
