The Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) is advertising for a number of positions for its planned petroleum department as the agency looks to boost capacity in the new South American oil producing nation.
“The Guyana Revenue Authority is spearheading an exciting and important phase of its development through enhancing its capacity in the Oil and Gas Sector in Guyana, South America,” the agency said in an advertisement released online Thursday.
“We are seeking creative, innovative and exceptional professionals who want to be at the sharp end of this new phase in Guyana’s development to join us at the GRA to fill a number of vacant positions and teams,” it added.
The vacancies listed in the advertisement include; relationship manager, oil lifting personnel, central processing clerk, exemption and inventory monitoring personnel, data and analysis and research personnel and administrative officer.
GRA has been taking a number of steps such as the establishment of a petroleum industry taxpayer unit to enhance its capacity so that it can effectively handle the requirements that come with oil production and a growing economy.
A former head of the oil and gas unit of the Canadian Revenue Authority has been contracted by GRA to assist with the development of the oil and gas unit while New Zealand technology company DataTorque has also been contracted to help improve revenue mobilisation and tax administration.
