Diverse, inclusive and equal


LGBT+ network

We provide a welcoming and inclusive environment where colleagues are encouraged to be themselves. PRISM is our LGBT+ staff network consisting of approximately 4500 members, which gives information and advice to anyone not just the LGBT+ community. We collaborate closely with Stonewall providing help, guidance and support to both managers and staff.

Disability initiatives

We offer an inclusive work environment for everyone. We aim to make sure that people with disabilities have access to the same opportunities as others to develop full and rewarding careers. Some services we provide include:

  • consulting colleagues about changes at work
  • Staff Disability Network
  • specialist equipment and software to help provide inclusive working for the majority of impairments
  • writing our documents and other materials in accessible formats.

Gender equality

We are an award winning champion for gender equality, taking pride in our diverse range of colleagues and aim to support everyone’s wellbeing by providing a working environment that values its workforce and removes discrimination and harassment. You can choose to join any of our 6 key Staff Diversity Networks covering Carers, Disability, Gender, LGB, Transgender and Race. Each network has directly had an impact on influencing decision-making, business strategies and ultimately improving the way HMRC operates.

Social mobility

We have been recognised as a leader across the Civil Services in this field. We celebrate and welcome people from all walks of life and backgrounds to apply for our roles. Also, we run a STRIDE mentoring programme which addresses the link between socio-economic background and career progression to ensure that everyone has the same opportunities for learning and progression.
