TAO Expert Program in Tax management and Public Digitization

Purpose of the Program

Improvement of public services is an issue that is receiving increasing attention and is constantly on all the public agendas. Quality services are necessary to improve the quality of life and day-to-day living, so there is an urgent need to improve the coordination, automation, accessibility and transparency of the services offered by local governments administrations, especially those closest to the people, such as city councils, provincial councils or municipal associations.

Both the private sector and government administrations are investing heavily in these changes, and are looking for qualified people to help them understand, design and implement the digitization of public services to bring about this revolution based on quality management. This field of work offers highly skilled jobs, with very interesting contracts and salaries in both the public and private sectors.

Many students finishing their university education in a wide range of fields have a high potential for employment by digital companies. The main prerequisites are interest in working in the field, willingness to learn how to use specific software and the will to make a difference.

The TAO Expert program developed by the Talent Incubator and funded by T-System is aimed at offering advice, training and paid professional experience to students with an interest in public tax management, to get them started in a successful career in a multinational digitization company.
