I had to smile at the employment process they have used to bring in a replacement for the other person in the legal department here who left in June 2009.  I would have called her my 'assistant', but apparently, despite being 3 years qualified to my 15 years qualified, she did not like that. [poor love]

So, in December I think they finally realised she had left and needed to do something.  With input from my boss in France (who has no idea how it works over here - and I should know that, because I don't tell him) they put out an advert, but not in any of the usual legal publications.  They received some cvs, apparently.  I never saw them.  They got that down to a shortlist of two.  My boss had a first interview with those two, with assistance from our internal recruiter.  The two were then called back for an interview with the MD, FD and the Development Director.  I had still not seen any cvs at this stage, or been asked to take any part in the interview process for the person who will be working with (not 'for'...I overheard they will be reporting in to the FD, as I do) me.  On the morning of the second interviews I was asked to be available if the candidates had any questions.  The first one asked to see me, and we talked through the reality of the situation, and not what she had been told by anyone else previously.  No-one told me that the second one had cancelled, so I went home late(r).  They received some more cvs yesterday.  And this morning France appointed the one I have seen, presumably from a shortlist of 1.

I have to smile, or I really would cry.  I hope she's good at her job, because right now I have no idea.

After all the shinnanegans and leaping through hoops to basically apply for and get my own job last year, they have appointed to the other role at my grade someone who failed their interview.

It's SO staggering that I can hardly process that information.

Still - there's a nice bottle of Pinot Grigio that won't be there tomorrow and the cup replay on ITV.

It's only been this time round that I've realised that the word "recession" in the manager's dictionary means "perfect excuse to sack people for no reason". And then sometimes they realise that they shouldn't have sacked people and scrabble around trying to get some monkey with a typewriter to replace the people they shouldn't have sacked.

...and did he?

What made me smile was remembering Black Books...
