    This sounds like what we used to call a “job”. Specified duties etc etc. Don’t we have a policy of paying at least the legal minimum wage for jobs? Sigh.

  • I agree with jenny. It is in effect a job and should be paid like a job.

  • Having met the previous holder I can say those are some big boots to fill…

  • The absence of any remuneration suggests the advice of the post holder will not be valued. So why bother?
