Following recent discussions on social media, which cited Tax Justice UK, we want to make clear our support for trans rights as set out in our equality and diversity statement. We have updated this statement to make it clear that all staff, technical advisers, and consultants are expected to follow to it, and to include details of how we will deal with any complaints. Our advisers are volunteers who provide technical advice to the organisation on an ad hoc basis.
By Robert Palmer, Executive Director
I’m delighted to announce the appointment of Paul Hebden as Tax Justice UK’s new Head of Communications, starting on 19 November.
Paul joins TJ-UK having worked within the NGO and charity sectors, and as a journalist, for a number of years.
He will take a hands-on role in developing a communications strategy and work with the media, and across social and digital channels, on practical and creative tactics to help reframe issues around tax.
Paul was previously Head of Media at the disability NGO, Sightsavers, and held similar roles at the International HIV / AIDS Alliance and World Cancer Research Fund. As a journalist, he was news editor of Inside Housing magazine and worked in regional newspapers and as a media consultant for social housing and homelessness organisations.
I’m looking forward to working with Paul as we campaign for everyone in the UK to benefit from a fair and effective tax system.
