POSITION VACANT

Our client, a large scale public sector operator, is seeking a new head of operations. Candidates must be able to deal sensitively with an under pressure CEO in a highly stressful environment and willing to be on-call 24-hours a day.

The enterprise is heavily indebted with declining revenue and critical solvency issues that make it an exciting opportunity in the growing area of sub-prime credit risk. The ideal candidate will be expected to personally underwrite any credit risk. Facing increasing competitive threats which have eroded market share from first to third place, the ideal candidate will be able to enthuse a demoralised and disappointed workforce. Job may require occasional liason with law enforcement officers.

The job is suitable for someone with experience of turning around failing organisations. Pay is limited, based in London.

Interested parties should contact Mr G. Brown, Listening Leader of the Labour Party, C/O Downing Street, London SW1.

Maguire’s Tyne Turns Blue

Kevin Maguire claimed last year that “back home on Tyneside at the weekend, I found many a Labour voter eagerly awaiting the day [the] former premier is dead and buried.” Margaret Thatcher will therefore no doubt be very pleased to learn that Maguire’s hometown, where he helps the local Labour Party, is a Conservative gain.

You won’t find so many Labour voters on the Tyne today…
