Last Monday I wrote about HMRC's attempts to recruit digital specialists, in response to the closure of its enquiry centres.
A loyal reader commented at the time:
"for the skills that they want they are offering low wages. yet again trying to get things done on the cheap, people have already applied hoping to negotiate the wage but have been told the bottom of the scale is the rate that will be paid. also they will have worse terms and conditions than fellow colleagues already working there."This point has been reiterated by Ronnie Ludwig, partner and head of the private wealth group at Saffery Champness, who is quoted by economia:
"HMRC has come under a lot of criticism recently in a very public manner. For a long time people have felt undervalued both in terms of the job they do and also financially, in terms of pay and rations.In other words, you get what you pay for!
HMRC wouldn’t be at the top end of what they could get.
I suspect that the morale issues and feeling of not being appreciated would be affecting the ability to recruit into that market."
Tax does have to be taxing.
