    Let’s hope that they don’t simply ‘shoehorn’ someone into the Buying Solutions role. The new Head of Category roles are all based in Liverpool. No, not exactly where the largest demand is, and a few hundred miles away from the most influential and significant senior stakeholder – the new CPO for Govenment – but it is where Mr Shields is currently located (and lives). Let’s hope they’ve set aside a decent expenses budget for travel costs.

    1. I don't believe it!:

      Spot on Final Furlong – strange isn’t it……I thought they were going to recruit or appoint “the best” for the roles…..not “the best that would be happy to be located in Liverpool”…..rumour has it there’s already dissent in the ranks with a firm favourite withdrawing from the race….I wonder how many of Mr Shields’ former OGC team are now occupying the interim roles at Buying Solutions……..?

  2. PH:

    Applying for the post of Managing Director of Buying Solutions no doubt!

    Where does this leave Shields?
