Sonia Sharp – An error in hiring?

The BBC brings us this report:

Ex-Rotherham children’s boss Sonia Sharp quits Australia role

The woman who was in charge of children’s services in Rotherham for three years during the grooming scandal has left her job in Australia.

Sonia Sharp led Rotherham’s children’s department from 2005-2008 before running education services in Victoria.

At least 1,400 children were sexually exploited in the town between 1997 and 2013.

Special Minister of State, Gavin Jennings said Dr Sharp was “seeking opportunities outside of government”.

  1. Whether her appointment follow all the correct guidelines or not, the fact is that this woman was in charge of Children’s services in Rotherham and Sheffield, with disastrous consquences, in the rape of thousands of children. Once the Jay report surface, should’ve disqualified her from any public office, in any country. Time and distance should be no protection for incompetence.

  2. Information on the internet might suggest that there is an issue of absence of candour prior to the appointment of SS in Oz and a suspected deliberate lack of due diligence by the Oz employers where each had a Common link.
