HMRC Spaffs £3M on Diversity Officers


A new Freedom of Information response reveals that HMRC has 16 full time diversity tsars on the payroll, at an astonishing cost of £1,019,534 a year. 

Since 2019, the total bill comes to over £3 million. 

Money well wasted!

Tax does have to be taxing.

  1. What a waste of taxpayers money!

    As a victim of HMRC bullying targeted at me because of a disability:
    - I lost my HMRC career because of being bullied and harassed
    - Lost my home and other assets
    - Became homeless
    - Had a mental breakdown and was left suicidal
    - Lost my marriage

    If £3 million on Diversity Officers can't even stop CRIMINAL abused meted out from HMRC, what is the point of them?

    That money would be better spent on dealing with the culture of bullying, abuse and lawbreaking that goes unchecked at HMRC!

    1. Did you go to an Employment Tribunal. If so, why didn't they find in your favour?

  2. This is absolutely appalling.

    How I miss the good old days of C & E (pre-mid 90s) when it was virtually impossible to get above HEO unless you were white and male.

    1. Were they the best people for the job though? Lots of SO's in the department I was in were women (who could do the job). Too many now get promoted way beyond their capabilities in the name of diversity.

  3. Although it pains me to say it. I agree with Jacob Rees Mogg on this, all of these woke box ticking non jobs should be abolished.

    If HMRC has got 3 Million going spare. I'd much rather it was spent giving people a pay rise

    Failing that, recruiting more Band Os to go after the billions that were fraudulently claimed during the fakedemic.
