What Do You Think About This ?

This Headmistress who appointed her own sister to a £80, 000 a year Deputys post - on paper it looks like the worst case of nepotism but how different is it from what happens with the Old School tie in careers such as Law or Masonic connections in the Police or Fire Service say ...

Fact is this lady went into a difficult school in a poor area and turned it around into the 3rd best performing school - do I detect a trace of sexism too ...

I'd snipe any religious type...right in the head.

Anyway

This woman gave a job to someone that, if the school had failed, it would have been a bad thing however it has seriously worked so in this individual case......... nothing wrong.

The rules in place are general rules and dont take into account the fact every case is individual.

i understand the point of having to have so many black workers and so many dissabled workers etc

but people should only be given jobs on merit, sex, creed and colour should'nt enter into it especially when its publicly funded.

Thats nowt... check out Southwest One.

http://www.unisonsouthwest.org.uk/showarti...d=58&t=news

South West One came into being in September last year after six months of negotiations between Somerset County Council, Taunton Deane Borough Council, Avon & Somerset Police and IBM.

Its aim is to provide all the back offices services for the three public bodies - like human resources, reception services and information technology – cheaper and more efficiently. South West One has taken over the jobs of 1,400 staff on the same terms and conditions and has promised tens of millions of pounds in savings over the next decade.

Questions were raised over the fact that the person brought in to run the project, Susan Barnes, was the wife of the chief constable of Avon & Somerset Police, Colin Port. Although there is no suggestion of any conflict of interest in her appointment, it has been criticised.

Ms Barnes was employed as a consultant – brought in under the council’s emergency procedures – for the 20 months until the deal was signed in September 2007. During that contracted period she earned more than £208,000. (Editor’s note: we can supply documents to support this if required).
