I’ve recently had to leave my job in “challenging” circumstances, and am urgently trying to find another job to pay the bills, keep the house, put clothes on the kids backs… you know, the usual curveballs that life throws in.
While I’ve been searching, I’ve come across some great job titles that I wanted to share with you, some of which may be commonly used without even thinking about them. These cover a variety of roles in society – to be very clear, it is only the title I am mocking! (And that’s without getting into the almost euphemistic nature of some roles – the worst locally being “public realm operative”. I’ll buy an ebook off anyone who can guess what that one really is!)
Web Developer – to help out Spiderman?
Domestic Violence Co-ordinator – because the only thing worse than domestic abuse, is the fact that it happens in an uncoordinated way
Clinical Fellow – well, I’ve always been a fairly clinical sort of chap
Kitchen Assistant – how much help can one kitchen need?
Practice Manager – practicing until the day they’ll be a real manager
Branch Administrator – there’s a lot of paperwork in those trees
Bank Chaplain – so those who’re refused loans have someone to pray with
Independent Chair – all those other ones are so needy
Patient Co-ordinator – the impatient need not apply
Penetration Tester … bet this isn’t as interesting as it is in my head!
Have you come across any unintentionally hilarious job titles? And what do you think a public realm operative does??
