most of those vacancies are in social work/social care

is it any wonder that every talentless bozo in the country with an arts degree (preferably) is trying to jump onto the social care/social work bandwagon

my neighbour is trying to jump on board as some kind of nursery nurse (feck knows what the titles they give themselves these days mean)

little does he know what a world of pain he is entering

Keep it up 'dog' - the salaries are a joke - private sector senior directors in cut throat jobs don't get these kind of salaries with less holidays, pensions and security to boot - they should be ashamed of themselves!!!

When you add that to MP seeking to extradite themselves from public scutiny over expenses - you start to see a pattern of the thieving state using its population to enrich themselves - it is very bad.

Quality waffle. And what's "fina"? Is it some kind of watchdog set up to tackle local government corruption and waste?

This PCT has an annual budget of £400,000,000. That is comparable to the FTSE 100 company Schroders turnover of £550,000,000. They are both service based organisations with big responsibilities. £145,000 person who saves you several million is a lot better than £70,000 person who spends several million over. This is why corporate lawyers get paid so much, because it is peanuts compared with the cost of the transactions they are acting on. In absolute terms it looks like a lot, but really it may represent good value.

That said council workers are bone idol shites!

A PCT may have a big annual budget but I bet most of it is pre-allocated/committed - seem to me that the PCT are mainly funnels for the delivery of most of that money to local hospitals and services.

Since you seem to know what goes on here - do you know what proportion of their spend they actually really control?

A public office salary should have nothing to do with the size of the budget. These jobs carry virtually no accountability, they have bloated budgets to throw around and they are working in an uncompetetive environment.

Our public services are being run by second rate people. These organisations have appalling productivity, very high levels of sickness and early retirement and a disatrous record of success. For example:

Billions of pounds of taxpayers’ money has been wasted on flawed government IT programmes with only 30 per cent of projects a success, a leading government technology expert has admitted.

The Government is spending about £14 billion a year on major IT projects, enough to build 7,000 primary schools or 75 new hospitals, the expert said. That means as much as £9.8 billion a year could have been squandered.

nice to see where the council tax goes,bet these guys don't live in the most deprived parts of the UK (wards in Glasgow usually top the list!)

has anyone been following the case of the chief exec in edinburgh who made himself redundent(months before retirement)then tried to reinstate himself after Audit Scotland took an interest . :blink:

Controversial council chief forced to quit - without his huge pay-off- JOHN Lindsay, the chief executive of East Lothian Council, was last night forced to relinquish control of the authority and is now unlikely to receive much of the controversial £130,000 in redundancy money he had persuaded councillors to pay him.

Amazing wages, however at the other end the vast majority of govt workers get fk all, was looking at IT jobs with local and county council and Im seeing wages of 16 - 17K on fixed contracts, ie no real benefits, no lifetime pensions, suspect they are also behaving like big buisness and funneling all the cash into the pockets of the parasites at the top of the monkey tree.

Fair comment but the picture is quite complicated. There are cabals within Councils who seem to do very well for themselves. A few months ago, we had the case of the light bulb changer who was getting £70K+ without even turning up for work. I suspect that groups like dustmen are also doing alright. I met one when I was abroad who told me that he took three foreign holidays a year.
