NHS chiefs are hiring £65,000-a-year “diversity champions” — 18 months after being ordered to stamp out woke jobs.

The Sun on Sunday found six current adverts for NHS equality posts.

Central London Community Health Trust seeks an Equality, Diversity Lead for up to £65,095.

The hefty pay packet – which comes with the offer of accommodation – is double that of an experienced frontline Band 5 nurse.

The successful candidate will be required to develop “cultural competency” through training, staff stories and discussion sessions “that promote lived experience and diversity of cultures, identities and thought”.

Trusts in Gtr Manchester, Hants and Coventry are also recruiting.

Yet former health secretary Sajid Javid ordered a crackdown on “waste and wokery” in June last year.

The TaxPayers’ Alliance said: “Brits are sick of paying for woke roles.”

“The health service should put patients first and scrap unnecessary equality and diversity jobs.”

The job adverts come as the NHS grapples with a record waiting list backlog.

Almost 7.8m people were waiting for non-emergency treatment in September.

The NHS said the jobs aid “legal compliance”.
