Not the first time
...and won't be the last. The clowns of the Civil Service evidently think that they will get a competent head of data strategy for less than £67k in the very heart of SW1. Dream on, that's half of the package that the commercial sector will be paying - and in financial services a mere third.
They will recruit somebody to this role, and that unlucky fill will have all of their hope, their energy, their ambition and optimism sucked dry by the dementors of the Civil Service. Hopefully the applicants have thought this through, and computed that for them a moderately decent pension scheme offsets a shite salary and a soul destroying job bounded on all sides by failure.
