Today I was invited to consider a 'communications' position at the fraud-ridden Australian Taxation Office. The job description - it's in the public domain, so there's no breach of confidentiality - is beyond parody:
At the ATO, you'll do work you can't do anywhere else.Nowhere else could you hide $165 million in your top drawer.
Work that is meaningful, diverse and challenging. Work that makes a real difference to the lives of Australians, and that contributes to their economic and social wellbeing. Work that might take you somewhere unexpected.Jail.
... Build cutting edge systems that engage, and make it easier to do the right thing than it is to do the wrong.That last sentence would have any other organisation ripping the ad down in seconds. And I don't mean the bad grammar.
