Ryanair advertises for O’Leary assistant as ‘worst job in Ireland’

Ryanair has advertised for an assistant to chief executive Michael O’Leary by describing the role as “the worst job in Ireland”.

The Irish low cost carrier is seeking a qualified accountant for the role.

But those applying to fill the vacancy must have a “thick skin”, “saint-like patience”, an “aversion to bollox-ology” and the “ability to operate without sleep or contact with the outside world”  while having “(ego) massage qualifications”.
The recruitment advert on the airline’s website adds that candidates must manage a wide range of issues including “general drudgery” and “molly coddling”.

It says that  “a bright, ambitious qualified accountant is required to assist Ryanair’s misunderstood but beloved CEO and manage a wide range of issues.”

The advert for the Dublin-based role also carries a note saying: “Dubs fans, Man U supporters and cyclists will not only be automatically excluded from the process, but will be tracked down, tortured and shot”.

More seriously, its adds: “This role is a great opportunity for an ambitious, self motivated qualified accountant to work in a demanding and interesting role.

“There will be significant opportunities for the candidate if successful, to further develop their career by promotion into the management team at Ryanair.”

No salary details are given. The closing date for applicants is November 18.
