Imagine the job description.

The Equality Advisory and Support Service helps people facing human rights issues or dis-crimination on the grounds of disability, race, gender and other forms of discrimination.

For example, supporting people denied housing or made redundant due to race, sexual orientation, age or disability. We seek a trustworthy, supportive and understanding manager to run our helpline at a time when hate crime is increasing.

Cashed in on Canada's asylum crackdown.

Part of the UK Olympics security fiasco.

Investigated by the UK's Serious Fraud Office and criticised in parliament for charging for electronic tags on released and deceased offenders.

Found to use disciplinary techniques in our prisons including tipping a pregnant woman's wheelchair while holding her feet.
