Put 'jobs for life' out to tender
I AM sure that when people see the eye-watering salaries paid to high-ranking civil servants in 'jobs for life', many of us believe they could do a better job for a much lower salary.
It inspired me to come up with a new method of filling these jobs, while saving the State a fortune. Instead of advertising a salary, let the applicants bid what they would expect to be paid for the job.
Provided the academic qualification criteria for the job is stated and the work experience and skills required for the job are clearly defined, the State will get some fantastic CVs from both the private and public sectors.
