Civil Service job moves not fair

A CEO leaves a public service job with a £275,000 handshake and the next day is appointed chairperson of the new Education Authority (News, March 7).

The minister announces between 500 and 1,500 job losses in education and then appoints this chairperson - no doubt with a large salary.

Is this what is destined to happen when senior civil servants take their redundancies and step straight into other public sector jobs? The minister seems to have a perverted view of fairness to other public sector employees.
