    Default Irish Gov employees go commercial....

    I was interested to read that deputy Irish Data Protection Commissioner, Gary Davis is going to take up a position with Apple as Head of privacy in Europe Davis leaving data protection post to take up Apple job - The Irish Times - Fri, Jan 25, 2013

    It's an interesting appointment! I don't know, is Mr Davies one of the leading experts on data protection accross all of Europe?

    or

    was it more important that he previously worked at the Data protection office in Ireland, which incidentally has responsibility for data protection, and upholding privacy laws for all of EU over tech companies who are headquartered in Ireland (FaceBook, Yahoo etc)..........

    Additionally, it's interesting to read also that former NTMA employees are apparently jumping ship to join Irish Banks NTMA to review policy on staff who join banks - The Irish Times - Fri, Jan 25, 2013

    Does this type of migration pose any difficulties for the longterm integrity of our regulatory and gov agencies? ......... staff recruitment and retention.......

    He won't last five minutes in the real world! Apparently.
    I wonder what sort of paycut he took?

    That's why no-one survives

    They do if they're going to be sacked anytime soon.

    Did it myself. It gets to the point where money and the opportunity to be recognised for the work one does, is too hard to resist.

    I, for one, salute the fact that you have the guts to say what you do despite the bile incurred.
    Many others just snipe from the sidelines and either run from personal admissions or lie to suit the occasion.

    A brain-drain will take place in the public sector over the next few years.

    Don't expect the likes of Elderfield and others to hang around. Certain parts of the PS have become no more than nurseries for private sector jobs.
