    I'm a huge supporter of these blogs and recommend them to colleagues as a great way to keep track of developments at this time of significant change. I therefore do not believe they should be used to advertise jobs; it is a poor conflation of your role as Registrar with your organisational interests.

      How else would jobs be advertised? I would go a step further and suggest jobs are advertised by Companies House directly instead of going through the Civil Service to expedite the review process.
