London, Dec 28 (ANI): A new study has revealed that about 600 million pounds of taxpayer’s money were spent on nondescript jobs in Britain last year.
Based on an analysis of job advertisements in the Guardian’s pages, it was reckoned that a large amount of money was spent to promote posts like community empowerment officer and NHS human rights worker.
The study found vastly inflated salaries on offer, with some executives earning more than 200,000 pounds annually.
The average full-time position on offer in the Guardian’s pages was 38,508 pounds, which is 7000 pounds more than in the private sector.
The study also found that most of the jobs had a lucrative range of perquisites such as car allowances, gold-plated pensions, and generous holidays.
“Each non-job representing bureaucratic, PC council overstaffing is taxpayers’ money diverted from essential services,” the Sun quoted Mark Wallace, of the Taxpayers’ Alliance, which conducted the study, as saying.
The top ten non-jobs were:
1. Head of Europe at Yorkshire Forward Development Agency
2. Carbon Reduction Advisor at Islington Council
3. Chief Executive at Newham Council.
4. Communications Media Manager at NHS London.
5. Director of Equality and Human Rights at the Leicester City NHS Primary Care Trust.
6. Welfare Rights and AntiPoverty Manager at Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council.
7. Assistant Chief Executive (Value for Money) at Charnwood Borough Council.
8. Head of Service (Transition) at Birmingham City Council.
9. Head of 2012 at Waltham Forest Council.
10. Community Empowerment Network Programme Manager at Thurrock Council.
