Equality and diversity

We need the widest possible view on talent, and we should be recruiting from all sections of society. We need to be open and honest with ourselves and with others about the obstacles that get in the way of that.

We need to support people from underrepresented backgrounds through every stage of the talent journey – making sure we create an inclusive culture and spot and develop internal talent just as we seek out external talent. It’s our responsibility to the people we serve to make sure we’re drawing on the widest possible range of views and experiences.

Diversity is a priority for our Executive Committee, and all our senior leaders have a particular role to play as vocal and visible advocates for a more diverse HMRC.
