Friday Funny: sales advisor (must have high level of self importance) role on Reed gets eight applications

Friday Funny: sales advisor (must have high level of self importance) role on Reed gets eight applicationsFriday Funny: sales advisor (must have high level of self importance)

We’re guessing someone from Operations Resources lost their job last month, or a prospective employee took to the web, if this ad for ‘sales advisor (must have high level of self importance)’ is anything to go for.

The ad – which received eight applications – seeks someone who has ‘a real desire to rip customers off to make lots of money’ to join a team of ‘likeminded twats’.

It goes on to explain: “You will be responsible for selling to customers things they don’t need, at grossley inflated prices.

“They will interview you and make it sound that they’re keen on you, then arrange a second interview at which you will think you’ve done really well, however, your feedback will be, "not for us" which will be really helpful to us in indentifying more suitable candidates and to you in understanding why you didn’t get the job.”

While it is now closed for applications, the post is still online. It is not the first time that an ad on a job site has made a splash – in February Guru posted an ad for the role of England football manager, which received 110 applications.
