I have met a IT infrastructure civil servant earning a grand a day.

Getting the flights to and from Scotland and London accomodation paid for by the client does strike me as beyond the pale though. :rolleyes:

He's a CIO, an IT Director. He is not just 'an IT manager'. If he is an interim, £1,000 per day is cheap. The Daily Wail would then just multiply that by 365 for the sake of the story.

If he is working for a consultancy and they have placed him, they could be charging nearer £2k per day.

I suspect the "£350,000" is what the agency is being paid + expenses.

I don't think that is unreasonable.

Alternatively, he is an SCS, a Senior Civil Servant. In that case most of his £350k will be bonus-based and he'll be out on his ear if the agency does not perform.

More worrying is the average salary there: £71,250.

I was more perturbed at not seeing "This would never have happened under the tories" in the comments section. Cyberman is slacking.
