£117,800 to be the PM’s mouthpiece

Posted on 18/01/2016


PR Week’s job ads page is rarely a source of inspiration for blog posts, but Number 10 have just posted an ad to become the PM’s deputy spokesperson.

So the Government would rather spend £117,800 on a deputy mouthpiece for the Prime Minister (who as well as being more than capable for speaking for himself has an official spokesperson and one of the most comprehensive news operations in the UK) than recruit FIVE more nurses.

So how does the salary of PM’s reserve spokesperson compare with other salaries of professions in the news?
