Dubious management (Billy Fox)

So, the Shetland Charitable Trust is looking for a director of finance and administration to replace their outgoing financial controller.

It was reported in the local media that this departure followed a request and acceptance for voluntary redundancy. This begs the question: when is a director of finance and administration different from a financial controller? Could it be when a voluntary redundancy package is required to obtain a compromise agreement?

In my opinion the dubious management of the Shetland folk’s trust money appears to continue, despite the new governance.

    I think a quote from Oliver Hardy is called for:

    “I have nothing to say!”
