Just five days to throw your hat into the ring to be the BBC's new Director of Radio, reporting to the new Director of Radio and Education, James 'Smiler' Purnell - you just know it's a structure that makes sense, don't you ?

Maybe James helped write the ad. Essential qualities include:

Proven experience in attracting, nurturing and developing top talent (both on and off screen)[sic]

Merely 'desirable':

Experience/ background in creative programme making. 

Crikey, that could mean two managers at the top of network radio with no hands-on experience in their cv.

And it seems that 'resilience' is now a 'required skill'.

Resilience with a proven track record of leading teams through transformational change and ambiguity strategically and operationally

Pardon ?
