Ex-Treasury minister Mark Hoban joins PwC

Former Treasury and Work and Pensions minister Mark Hoban has taken on a part-time role as a senior adviser within PwC, six months after stepping down as an MP.

Hoban spent 15 years in parliament representing the constituency of Fareham, and spent almost half that time working as a shadow minister and then minister in the Treasury.

This included a two-year stint as financial secretary, a role which includes oversight of the UK’s tax system.

Hoban, who once said pre-RDR adviser qualifications were “at the same level as a diploma in shift management offered by McDonald’s”, also sits as a non-exec at the London Stock Exchange and chairs general insurance body Flood Re.

He took on the PwC job last month with the approval of Parliament’s advisory committee on business appointments.

His new role will be subject to the conditions “that he should not draw on any privileged information available to him as a minister” and that he should not directly lobby the Government for two years from his final day as a minister.

Hoban’s final role as DWP employment minister came to an end in October 2013.

A PWC spokeswoman says: “PWC can confirm the appointment of Mark Hoban as an internal adviser to the UK firm’s financial services practice.  The role will have no client or other external responsibilities.”
