The Taxpayers Alliance keeps a regular tally Non-jobs of the week. There are an array of nannying, politically correct, superfluous, duplicatory and just plain dotty posts. Diversity Officers, Equality Officers, Policy Officers, Political Officers, PR Officers, Community Inclusion Officers, Sustainability Managers, Co-ordinators for everything you can imagine, etc, etc.
