Tuesday Jobs: Poisoned Chalice Edition
Some job descriptions don't mention the extra aggravation involved. We've clarified what's involved for a few new employment ads.
▪️SNC-Lavalin is hiring a Stations Project Manager, responsible for building the individual stations on the new Trillium Line. We're not sure which would be more heartburn inducing: working in Ottawa Transit or working for SNC-Lavalin.
▪️The City of Ottawa is hiring a Transit Communications Officer. $63 - 89,000 per year, and, in this case, Tums is probably a legitimate tax deduction.
▪️The City is also hiring a Councillor's Assistant, Level II. There is no indication to which councillor the lucky candidate would be assigned: one of the fun activist councillors, who are always in the public eye? One of the businesslike ones, who welcome visitors like the Godfather on his daughter’s wedding day? Or will they be assigned to that guy. You know the one we mean.
▪️Reporting Unit Agent for the Ottawa Police Service. This position takes all the non-emergency calls except the job description says, ‘Assess and transfer to Communication Centre life or death emergencies; except in the event of a suicidal callers where immediate assistance is required and risks managed immediately’. $34 per hour for life and death decisionmaking.
▪️CTV National News is looking for a producer for the Ottawa Bureau, where you will simultaneously be a lickspittle for Justin Trudeau’s Liberals, a mouthpiece for the Conservatives while all the time be a secret socialist.
We'll see you tomorrow – Martha and Darren
