Union chief hits out after new top civil post is advertised
Billed as a ‘new role for a new era’ the position, which will be advertised in the Financial Times later this week, has provoked the ire of Nick Corbel of the Unite Union.
He is angry that the States ‘continue to create senior posts while freezing wages, making people redundant and reducing services’.
‘It seems that they continue to cut at the bottom to create jobs at the top. We are always getting told to make savings and that we cannot afford to recruit.
The advertisement in the JEP says that the newly-created post of director of financial services will be ‘one of the most influential roles for the Island’.
