  1. Indeed an exciting opportunity for a non existent highly experienced Covid Admin Manger, given the virus has only been with us for a relatively short period.
    Managing a large staff and being part of a multidisciplinary team one wonders what’s actually involved, to presumably manage covid admin protocols or paperwork that’s hopefully already established. Then of course such an exceptional individual can look forward to working right up until year end with just enough time to say hello and goodbye,. What a strange world we live in !,
