Factcheck please?

February 1, 2013

Does anyone know how the announcement of 100 recruits into the HMRC affluence unit turns into a job advert for, um, a grand total of 9 vacancies?  Apparently it’ll be fully operational by April.  What year???


  1. This year of course; the new streamlined civil service is so efficient that even with interview rounds starting 11/3/13 they’ll all be in post within a fortnight. Possibly.
    As to your first question, I think the key is the bit in the press release where it says the team “is to begin” recruitment of 100 additional Inspectors. But not necessarily of course finish…

  2. Better yet of course, how do they reconcile it with this: http://www.taxresearch.org.uk/Blog/2013/02/07/hmrc-are-going-to-lose-more-than-6-of-staff-tackling-tax-avoidance-and-evasion-in-the-next-year/ – especially if they’re recruiting internally?!
