'Vague' council posts created as front line cut

WELSH councils are making appointments to newly-created “non-jobs” as many of the nation’s front-line posts are axed, Wales on Sunday can reveal.

As the cuts take hold, we have learned Welsh councils are actually employing more people, including some in positions like “walking and cycling officer”.

[These include Anglesey Council, Caerphilly council, Cardiff council, Conwy County Borough Council, Denbighshire County Council, Torfaen County Borough Council]

The posts are part of 4,000 new jobs council chiefs across the UK have deemed necessary since last May’s general election but which have been branded “vague” and “non-essential” by critics.

My comment: Save bin men, nurses and essential front line staff before recruiting people to do none essential jobs.
