HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) enforce the National Minimum Wage (NMW) in line with the law and policy set out by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The Government is determined that everyone who is entitled to the NMW receives it.

All HMRC vacancies for NMW staff are advertised through civil service jobs and recruited in line with the civil service resourcing policy. HMRC makes full use of the budget allocation it receives from BEIS for current and future NMW recruitment. No announcements are planned in relation to this.
