Boss looking to hire someone that is going to be shit
Background: work in AM for a brand name shop that has just stepped in to a niche market, they hired a full team to access this market, I was hired 2 months ago from a different shop.
Due to growth my boss is going to hire someone that will report in to me and take over a lot of the admin work I'm responsible for atm. He said he "had someone in mind" so he obviously knows this person (Nepotism probably).
The CV (Resume) landed on my desk today - their experience is in a completely unrelated industry, no degree (they have an accounting qualification), poor grammar, and if I even assume a conservative 20% of the projects/work on this two page atrocity are bullshit, we're in trouble.
Point is, this person will report in to me. I'm going to have to explain how this niche market works and its going to take a year for them to come up the curve. And although they'll be taking the low-touch monotonous stuff, it's not trivial work at all, if they fuck up it will fall back on me.
Interview is next week, if it goes how I expect it to go and if my boss is still keen on them, how do I convince them not to hire this person without potentially burning bridges with my boss or sounding like a dick ? Hopefully they pull it out of the bag and prove me wrong to avoid this.
Anyone had a similar situation?
