High-flier wanted for top job at reshaped Inland Revenue

The
chancellor, Gordon Brown, is looking to attract "a leading captain of
industry" to run the new, integrated Inland Revenue and Customs &
Excise.

The
position, advertised on the Treasury website, said the head of the new
department will be a full-time executive chairman with the same rank as a Civil
Service permanent secretary. Pay for that grade ranges from £100,000 to
£250,000 a year.

Most
chairman and chief executives at major companies earn more than £1m.

The
advert states the chairman will be "responsible for defining the vision
for the new department and making it a reality, developing a new business
strategy, while ensuring the continued operation of business as usual".
