My old friend Andrew Finch, erstwhile registrar of the Architects Registration Board, must either be chuckling to himself or fuming over the advertisement for his replacement at the board. 'Protecting the consumer. Safeguarding the reputation of architects,' reads the job ad for the £70,000 pa post. Candidates must be 'approachable, enthusiastic and with the personal presence commensurate with this leadership role', and also be an 'excellent communicator and networker' who will have to 'develop and manage a comprehensive media strategy'. I wonder why on earth they got rid of the last chap . . .
