Interesting CVs #2: Barnet - spread her fame far and wide

In the job description for the chief executive of Barnet council is included this requirement:
Raising Barnet’s profile regionally, nationally and internationally is one of the Chief Executive’s key functions...
Why?, one really has to wonder.

If the postholder succeeded in making Barnet notorious rather than famous, would that be a sackable offence?

You can read Nick Walkley's full job description here.

Does it really require a £200,000 salary to raise the council’s profile from ‘laughing stock’?

DCMD: no, more than that - Andrew Travers, Chief Finance officer, is paid £1,000 per day, I believe,

Have you read the audit report? Have you seen the punctuation? Don't look - you will pass out.
