Conwy County Borough Council wins none job of the week

This week’s non-job. The accolade goes to Conwy County Borough Council in Wales, who are looking for a European Project Support Officer.

Job description: Age Friendly Communities” is a 3 years INTERREG project to develop intergenerational strategies on both local and transnational levels and to test pilot activities which encourage cohesion & social inclusion, positive image & cultural heritage, healthy lifestyles & life-long learning. You will be responsible for supporting project management tasks and implementing, promoting and evaluating the project’s pilot schemes in Conwy.Applicants should be educated to National Diploma Level with strong administrative, financial, communication, IT and organisational skills. You should be motivated, flexible, and be able to motivate others, work under pressure to tight deadlines. Ability to travel nationally and internationally is required. The ability to communicate through the medium of Welsh is desirable.

There is going to be national and international travel involved with this non-job. Is the post-holder going to make regular visits to Brussels to talk about cohesion and healthy lifestyle with other European Project Support Officers from around the EU? Are they going to make visits to Cardiff to lobby the Welsh Assembly Government?

My comment: "INTERREG project to develop intergenerational strategies on both local and transnational levels and to test pilot activities which encourage cohesion & social inclusion, positive image & cultural heritage, healthy lifestyles & life-long learning." Or put simply a load of over paid idiots jetting abroad to sit around a table talking bollocks at the taxpayer's expence.
