The war on council non-jobs and waste

As reported in the Daily Telegraph last Friday, the total number of council workers not employed in traditional front-line roles is almost 750,000. We highlighted in our report last year that councils spend £41 million a year on unnecessary jobs such as climate change officers, diversity officers, political advisers, and European officers.

There are also the more famous (or infamous) non-jobs, such as North East Lincolnshire’s “future shape programme manager” and Falkirk’s “cheerleading development officer.”

My comment: They should sack the people who thought up these none-jobs as well as the post holders.

  1. Climate change and diversity workers are not 'non-jobs'. They might not always be done well but that's a different thing.

    Happy to see the end of political advisers though. And the TPA which is just a right wing front.
