I recently asked why it is that Dave Hartnett was still only "acting" head of Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
Now I know why.
HMRC, in the face of plummeting morale, are changing their complex and incomprehensible management structure to try to bring in some elements of corporate governance and efficiency from the real world.
As such, they are splitting the old role of Chairman, between a new full time position of Chief Executive and part time non executive position of Chairman.
I would ask as to why didn't they have this structure in place before?
Anyhoo, HMRC has scanned to "talent" pool within its organisation and found that it is sadly deficient; therefore the posts are being advertised in the real world.
Perversely, the vacancies are not advertised on the HMRC site, or on the Civil Service site.
Can anyone tell me when they will advertise for the position of Finance Director, which is soon to be vacated by Stuart Cruickshank?
It all seems rather muddled and vague.
Tax does have to be taxing.
