Strangely enough, "Bad News Burier", "Freedom of Information Obfuscator" and "Public Money Pisser" don't currently feature.
An article by The Sun (ex-DM) journalist Paul Revoir reveals that the bloated BBC has five times more job titles than a company its size should have.
Five years ago the BBC was slated for having 4,500 job titles, but in the intervening years it has somehow managed to acquire an extra 500, including:
- Senior Change Manager
- Solution Architect
- Reward Project Analyst
- Thematic Research Manager
- Lead Platform Architect
- Talent, Learning and Organisation Development Manager
- Jupiter System Specialist
Jonathan Isaby of the TaxPayers' Alliance said: "Transparency at the Beeb is absolutely crucial to make sure these countless job titles don’t end up masking duplicate roles at the expense of hard-pressed licence fee-payers. Far too often people have no idea what these fancy titles actually mean. That cannot be right."
A BBC spokesman said: "We’re creating a simpler, leaner BBC which means we need fewer senior managers and can focus as much money as possible on programmes and services rather than everyday running costs."
