Any non-job advertised in the Guardian...
Take this one, copied word for word from the Guardian. It pays £60,000 a year of public money, yet appears to have absolutely zero purpose:

'The Governance and Risk Policy Advisor will work closely with the corporate secretariat department and the business planners to support the leadership of the regulator. The successful candidates will review and develop the current risk management framework and risk policy as well as providing the secretariat to the risk committee. The position will also develop and maintain a good working relationship with the internal auditors at the main site in London.'

Please fill in this "freedom to lead 360 Degree feed-Forward form"
It's not the Profession of "Project manager" that I despise, it's power-hungry incompetent arse-mops who seem to gravitate towards it en-mass that get my goat.

Now, the title I've used sounds like I've made it up from "management bollocks" but it is genuinely something that I received a few weeks ago. According to the accompanying e-mail it was a questionaire designed to create "empowered project managers".

The questionaire asked questions (that phrase is perfect.. I think I'll use it again) about whether certain individuals were capable of working with complex personalities, and essentially was trying to find out if they could hide their inabilities with different "project management techniques". It was repugnant.

The Role of project manger is to be a set of walls, doors and fences. They are simply there to organise and guide the people who are the specialists *without* trying some transparent pseudo group-psychology bullshit.

We have one here who epitomises the stereotype. We'd had a great meeting with the MD and top designers of a company not so long ago. Me and another of our top designers were there, bouncing ideas around and have a right laugh. Massive progress and a crucible of geeky engineering creation... and as we draw to an end Project Manager pipes up "Well, we'd like to thank you for your can-do attitude and positive way of thinking. It's clear that you have drive and passion for the project..... etc.

I don't how her misguided diatribe continued, because my attention was taken by the Managing director/chief engineer of this company - caught in the onslaught of shallow self-importance - both simultaniously face-palming.

rant alert
it does not even qualify as a profession but the slouching shrugging cocksure little cunts in electrical retailers make me glad i'm not allowed to carry a weapon. a few weeks i was looking for some speakers for my laptop - a temporary measure until my good ones emerged from some packing crates in a storage warehouse. while fiddling with a 'demo' model to get some sound through the pissing thing one saunters past in his Asda Roll Back interview ensemble: grey crumpled shirt, shiny trousers and those ridiculous pointy toed shoes the chavoscenti all seem to have been issued with lalely.

'Excuse me, this demonstration model doesn't seem to be working, could you help please'

'shrug' 'll get the bloke to look at it', off he meanders slackly masticating on his fetid gum

so i gave up on him and continued looking at various models plugging in cables etc where required

Then our dashing emissary returns; 'bloke that fixes um is on lunch - cn'a 'elp'

After a very brief yet explicit detail of what i was look for he beckons me away to the iPod docks.

'ees are quite good' he says cranking up the volume on a lurid dildo pink plastic iPod dock shaped like a pig

Really and where do i plug my laptop in?


'Do i look like i want a bloody pink plastic pig?


'Are you taking the piss?

It was at this point my wife gently guided me away. I had been polite and patient right up till then but she knows me well and decided then was a good point to draw my attention away to some new LCD televisions.

i hate those little cunts - pull your trowsers up get a proper job. Oh and another thing - you're not black innit.
