McKinsey & Company has hired Mary Calam, who most recently served as the UK Home Office’s Director-General of crime and policing, after receiving clearance from the Advisory Committee on Business Appointments (ACOBA). Calam, however, will not be able to use ‘privileged information’ as part of her work at McKinsey.
Calam will likely work on projects which will advise UK governments on crime, policing, and national security issues, Civil Service World reported 22 June. As part of the agreement, Calam will be barred from lobbying the UK government for McKinsey for the next two years. Calam will also not be allowed on bids for projects related to the Home Office until a year has passed. The announcement comes in the wake of new rules implemented by ACOBA governing civil servants and jobs in the private sector. The government body is looking to allay concerns of former civil servants taking advantage of their government connections to gain an unfair advantage in the private sector. Those who fall foul of ACOBA’s guidelines will be named and shamed, the organization said.
