Today, cardinals are meeting to start making a decision on who should be the new Pope. So, of course, it should come as no surprise that there is a job ad for the role on LinkedIn.

Unfortunately now removed, the ad suggests that a referral bonus includes eternity in heaven, while the company description of the Roman Catholic Church suggests ‘if you haven’t heard of us you really don’t stand much of a chance’.

Benefits include use of the Popemobile…but the successful candidate will have to work on Sundays.
