BLOG #2 - THE ABBOTSFORD BAR and RESTAURANT, EDINBURGH

The more boring a profession, the fancier and often more ridiculous is the job title. Job titles were at one time meant to convey concisely a person’s basic duties and role in a few words. When you were given an individual’s business card or received a letter, the job title provided would give a general – but clear – idea of his/her role within an organisation.

The truth is any job can sound impressive and important if you engineer a little complexity into the title. The UK NHS has become a prime example of the aggrandisement job title phenomenon – so called uptitling.  Often the amount of time and effort that someone spends campaigning for an impressive-sounding job title is inversely proportional to the title's usefulness (and possibly that of the job title-holder).
