Are you looking for an exciting new opportunity in a fast paced and friendly team? Do you want to work in a role that is at the heart of delivering the government’s economic policy? If so, we'd love to hear from you!

About the Team

We are looking to recruit a Policy Adviser - Budget Presentation and Project Management within the Strategy, Planning and Budget Group of the Budget and Finance Bill Team.

We are a fun and supportive team which sits at the centre of the Treasury, and is responsible for delivering the department’s policy objectives through Budgets and Statements.

Our work can be dynamic and fast paced at times, especially in the run up to fiscal events, but we work flexibly as a team to support each other. You will have visibility of policy development happening across the department and will regularly be exposed to and work on issues prone to hitting the newspaper headlines, which makes our work relatable and interesting!

About the Job

In this role, you will:
  • Create and manage a project plan for delivering Budgets and Statements, covering the full range of milestones and processes relevant to fiscal event delivery.
  • Coordinate the development, clearance and publication of budget documents.
  • Lead on core elements of fiscal event delivery, including internal governance and communications.
  • Build and maintain strong relationships with a wide range of stakeholders to ensure essential budget services are delivered.
  • Design and implement a cross-departmental lessons learned process to collect, review and act on feedback from the department across all budget processes run by the team.
  • 'Account manage’ a policy portfolio, working with teams to track policy development and ensure timely input into budget products and processes.

About You

You will be responsible for ensuring the smooth running of Budget and Statements across the department, delivering a high quality of service, identifying and mitigating risks, and driving delivery. You do not need any specific qualifications or experience to take on this role, just evidence of the right behaviours, values and motivation to succeed.

In this role you will be well placed to get an outstanding insight into policy development across the whole of the Treasury’s remit and will play a vital role in delivering our priorities.

HM Treasury is proud of a diverse and inclusive work environment, committed to fairness and the promotion of equality of opportunity for all. We know that having a range of experiences, ways of working and thinking makes us a stronger organisation, better at developing policy that is reflective of the communities we serve. We embrace different views and experiences and value the fresh perspective that people from a variety of circumstances bring to the work we do. We welcome applications from candidates who have not previously worked for the Civil Service, mid- and late-career changers with transferrable skills, people from all backgrounds and circumstances regardless of disability, ethnicity, LGBT+ identity and socio-economic status.

Some of the Benefits our people love!
  • 25 days annual leave (rising to 30 after 5 years), plus 8 public holidays and the King’s birthday (unless you have a legacy arrangement as an existing Civil Servant). Additionally, we operate flexitime systems, allowing employees to take up to an additional 2 days off each month
  • Flexible working patterns (part-time, job-share, condensed hours)
  • Generous parental and adoption leave packages
  • Access to a generous Defined Benefit pension scheme with employer contributions of 27%
  • Access to a cycle-to-work salary sacrifice scheme and season ticket advances
  • A range of active staff networks, based around interests (e.g. analysts, music society, sports and social club) and diversity (e.g. women in the Treasury, ethnic minority network, LGBT* network, faith and belief network)
