Dave Jones Once again -spot on. Perhaps you need to spend a year running each of our main departments to get that message across. Mo Yes we should get the best person for the job, regardless of where they come from, but surely the objective must be to ensure that we educate locals and develop them so that they are at least equal to the non-local. If that means that the local needs to be seconded off-island to gain extra experience, then that's got to be part of the personal development strategy. Apart from the fact that gaining experience on-island might sometimes might be restricted, we should ever fall short on education. Good training programmes are vital though.
