Philip Hammond, Chancellor, hires Sapphire Partners, “diversity focused” recruitment firm, to find next Bank of England Governor

Appalling. Sapphire Partners, in a section of their website titled, What sets us apart?, have this:

We are trailblazers. For nearly a decade we have been advocates for women in business. We were the first executive search firm to actively promote women and we are as passionate about supporting and nurturing women now as we were then. We continue to be magnets for securing female talent in a market that now realises the incredible contribution that women bring at executive level. While we are champions for women, our door is open to all talented professionals, whatever their gender.

We search for hidden gems. We are hardworking and tenacious in our search to find truly great candidates, whether it’s burgeoning talent or skills that have not yet been recognised. [J4MB: Hmm, why have their “burgeoning” talents or skills not yet been recognised? My own burgeoning talent and skills as a top-flight footballer have yet to be recognised.]

And who do we find on the Advisory Board? That radical feminist harridan, Cherie Blair.

If everyone who read this gave us £5.00 – or even better, £5.00 or more, monthly – we could change the world. £5.00 monthly would entitle you to Bronze party membership, details here. Benefits include a dedicated and signed book by Mike Buchanan. Click below to make a difference. Thanks.
