The HSE have just advertised advertised
for a general manager of St Columcille's (aka Loughlinstown) Hospital.
This is a starting salary of €3300 topping out at €3750 pcm. Is the HSE really going to attract high-quality managers in at these kind of wages with Dublin housing costs?
Isn't that hospital gradually being transitioned into a long-term care home? Their A&E is gone thank god. I think this is really a local admin/manager position and the shots are actually called at a group level. The most important skill is probably using Excel to do all the monthly reporting rather than any vision or strategy.
Have you read the job description? It implies it is a demanding senior management position.
Jaysus, if that's a "demanding senior management position" in the public sector, things are worse than I thought
Jobs like this have very little room to actually do anything creative; you cannot off your own bat:
- Set pay or conditions for any staff
- Set charges to your clients
- Increase or decrease staffing levels in any area
- Instigate any capital expenditure
You're basically a middle manager implementing policy and pay scales set by the government and your bosses (in this case the COO of a hospital group).
