HMRC Joins The Masons
HMRC are recruiting for two positions; a part time non-executive chairman and a Chief Executive Officer.
HMRC, in the face of plummeting morale, claim that they are changing their complex and incomprehensible management structure to try to bring in some elements of corporate governance and efficiency from the real world.
HMRC scanned the "talent" pool within its organisation and found that it is sadly deficient; therefore the posts were to be advertised in the real world.
Isn't it rather odd then that these two posts are not advertised on the HMRC website?
In fact they have never been advertised on the HMRC site.
Indeed, you have to look very hard to find any evidence anywhere that HMRC are proactively seeking to fill these roles at all.
Simon Sweetman of AccountingWeb states that there has in fact been only one advert placed for the Chairman's role, in the Sunday Times on the 2nd of March.
"The highest level of leadership, chairing and influencing skills are required, combined with extensive experience of senior executive or non-executive leadership in large complex organisations. The Chair will have a proven track record of managing multiple stakeholders and, preferably, of working with Government."
Simon then notes that the salary is around £150K, for this part time post, but that the advert gives no closing date.
Has HMRC become part of the Masons, whereby only those invited to the very top positions are allowed to join?
Tax does have to be taxing.
