The Daily Telegraph: Sydney bus PR job ads disappear amid concerns users want money spent on drivers
Anna Caldwell, April 6, The Daily Telegraph excerpt below, or full story here.
“Yesterday, the only STA job advertisements online were for bus drivers.
THE agency running Sydney’s bus network has been ordered to rip down three job ads for PR staff amid concerns the “communications” gigs were a waste of money for taxpayers, who would want bus drivers hired instead.
The Daily Telegraph understands serious questions were raised at senior government levels about why the bureaucracy needs to spend another $400,000 protecting its image.
The hiring drive came after the State Transit Authority’s remit was narrowed this year with the privatisation of buses in the inner west.
