Sorry if this is the wrong section but I would like to ask for advice on a situation I am currently experiencing. I am a joint HOD in a large department in an academy and the other joint HOD is sadly leaving us. The job was never advertised and therefore nobody in the department was able to apply for it. Today I found out (via a passing remark by SLT) that somebody who came in for a visit a few weeks ago has been given the job. This person knows a member of SLT but is not (in my opinion) the right person for the job. I now have zero trust in the management, I have angry team who have no chance at career progression and I feel almost bullied as I was not asked my opinion on any of this. Any advice would be greatly received. Thank you.
