IRS To Hire ‘Diversity and Inclusion Specialist’ At $123,758 Salary
After repeated scandals, the IRS is looking to hire a new “Diversity and Inclusion Specialist” and is offering a generous $123,758 annual salary plus benefits.
The opening was announced on June 11 and will be advertised until June 24.
According to the description this “diversity” officer will “serve as a change agent to provide strategies, solutions, training, tools, resources and thought leadership on diversity and foster inclusion” as well as “build internal awareness” in the IRS.
This officer will be tasked with hearing and resolving complaints from employees and to “effect minor disciplinary measures, such as warnings and reprimands.” The new position will also assist in creating employee training programs.
“At the IRS, you will use your skills in accounting, business, finance, law enforcement, information technology, advocacy and more to help make America stronger,” the listing reads.
The job requires “thorough knowledge” of diversity issues, or “circumstances associated with diversity and inclusive issues,” and asks for one year of “specialized experience” in the field.
Of the compensation, the IRS says, “Our comprehensive benefits are very generous–helping you to reach your personal goals by supporting your professional growth, health, well-being and your family needs.”
The “diversity” in the job description, however, pertains only to workplace diversity among IRS employees and says nothing about extending the same courtesy to Americans applying to the taxing agency for their tax status.
