Want a top job? - Talk to TS

Having recently joined Ernst & Young from his previous positions as finance director of Manchester Airport and the Commonwealth Games, David Leather clearly has no shortage of ambition. But to tell Accountancy Age (however tongue-in-cheek) that he wouldn’t be satisfied being another audit partner at the firm and was ultimately after chairman Nick Land’s job, was like showing a red rag to a bull.

Naturally, Taking Stock would be failing in its duties if it were not to put the news of Land’s ultimate successor to the man himself.

Land, with requisite professional ease, refused to bite at our coarsely laid bait, but it did get us thinking. Why bother with all those human resources notice boards and golfing Sundays with the MD? Next time you’re after the top man’s job, just get in touch ­ TS will see what it can do. For a small fee, of course.
