Want a job?

With Barack Obama's election there will be thousands of people changing jobs in America during the transition and after his inauguration. Some will be directly appointed by him, some will be appointed by those appointees and so on and so forth. The list of all these 'noncompetitive appointments' within the US Federal civil service is called The Plum Book and is[1] an enlightening read as it tells you things like term lengths, locations and whether the post requires a senate confirmation hearing.

I would love to see what the equivalent manual for the UK government would look like.
