The P&J reports:
'The top social work job in the north has been advertised by Highland Council, offering an annual salary of £105,450 – up by £450 on last year despite the recession.' See the full article here.
Isn't there supposed to be a cash problem somewhere? How about offering that job at £80,000 and seeing what the calibre of applicants are? If the cook and admin assistant had to go how about the high heid yins sharing the pain? Wake up Highland Council the good times are supposed to be over.
Yesterday the Highland News was asking questions about Highland Council again in an article entitled 'Suspicion high-salary posts are bullet-proof'. It's beginning to look like it isn't it?
