Wanted: Office-holder to do some window-dressing on behalf of a senior civil servant who is looking bad and needs to look like they are trying hard to fix the problems in their department.
Candidate will be able to say all the right things at interview with a nod and a wink while absolutely maintaining the core civil service ethos of p*ssing public money up against the wall as fast at HMRC can collect it, while going to lots of meetings and giving it the big 'I am' at all times.
Candidate should have a proven track record of disastrous IT mismanagement in at least 2 large organisations and should have a lot of 'friends' in the big system integration companies who will latch on to them like leeches the moment they are appointed and help them to achieve the spending goals stated above.
Any candidate who has a proven ability to actually get anything done, or worse, actually has any grasp whatsoever of IT will not be considered for this role.
Interviews will be held on the 1st May but we already know who's going to get the job. It will be somebody that the chief exec used to go horse-riding with.
