executive director for people, communities and society - what's that anyway?


CASH-strapped Oldham Council has been criticised for paying for two directors to stay in a hotel during a Manchester conference.

This covered two rooms with the executive director for people, communities and society, Veronica Jackson, who earns £132,000, staying three nights, and the assistant executive director for children and young people, Michael Jameson, who earns £105,000, staying two nights.

I don't know how well people know Oldham but it's NEXT to Manchester and a straight line between.

When I had a scan through the BBC expenses last month (after they were forced to reveal them for people on over £100k (i.e. shedloads of them)) one thing became immediately apparant: Those on well over £150-£200k and heads of departments etc. tended to stay at Premiere Inns or even Travelodges while those on about the £100k mark tended to use their maximum nightly allowance and stay at very expensive 4 star hotels and luxury Inns. The reasoning I figured, was because these people probably believed they were lower under the radar and could more easily get away with it (and vice versa probably). Worth a scan, always funny though seeing people on £240k putting in exepnses claim for 90p parking charge.

It's all here:
