Job ad of the month - I'm tired of writing boring adverts for boring Recruitment Consultants

Posted By: Thomas Shaw, 9:26pm Monday 05 July 2010    Print Article

Did I miss the memo on funny job ad day? Today I came across a number of funny (and a few weird) job ad copies including "This is DOPE" and "If this sounds like your kind of gig, then please send us your CV and an idea of your salary expectations to one of the sexiest men on the planet (WTF)…our Human Resources Manager".

But there could only be one winner... This month’s winner is Engineering People who are looking for a Recruitment Consultant. Some of my favourite lines include
  • "I'm tired of writing boring adverts for boring recruitment consultants. So I thought a little honesty would not go a stray."
  • "Eat the nuts and sultanas (yes, I do offer almonds and the occasional peanuts) provided for morning tea"
  • "Complaints about this advert may be directed to Peter"
  • "I need a good lie down now, so call me, I'll be on the couch."
Kudos to Peter at Engineering People for the funny job ad. (points off for keywords loading).

How refreshing! Maybe slightly over-long?
