    I do not mean to be disrespectful to this job post. I like the job title, but I thought the Director should be at 40K or above? Do not you think?

    Why is it not allowed?

    Are we not a part of a free society who can talk about anything?

    Did our Fathers and Grandfathers not fight against fascism?

    Or are we deluded into thinking this way only because we are told to do so by those who would silence us in case we upset someone?

    hehe! happy Friday everyone! have a good weekend

    Behave yourself @bossman
    It is allowed but we ask that you take it to a separate thread because otherwise any useful info gets buried in the tirade of posts about salary etc

    Apology for starting the conversation with salary. But they seem to devalue the IT profession and I feel the Job Title does not reflect the salary as compared to other job adverts, and at the same time, they wanted to recruit a well-qualified, experienced, hands-on Director of ICT Services. However, they did not specify how qualified the person should be, as I could not find any more details apart from advert on their website. I was trying to download an application form (the link is located on the top right of the page), but instead got an Error 404 page.
    In my opinion, this is a high profile job, which will lead to the school IT/ICT strategy, but they do not seem to take care of how to approach and attract the best IT professional.
    I do not normally feel frustrated, but on this occasion, I really do.
