HMRC loses FD to local government

Stephen Jones, the finance director of HM Revenue & Customs, has stepped
down from the position to pursue a career in local government.

Jones will be the new director of finance and performance at the Local
Government Association. He begins work at the LGA at the beginning of next year.

Jones said the position was one of the few he was interested in outside of
the Revenue.

‘When I heard about the position with the LGA, it turned out to be one of the
few posts that I would have considered outside HMRC. That’s because it offers me
a chance to use my skills in a completely different but equally exciting area of
public service,’ he said.
