Fancy a career change? This might not be for you! Ryanair’s eccentric CEO is looking for an assistant in what has been described by the airline itself as the “worst job in Ireland”.
The airline is known for its low cost, no frills flights and its controversial CEO, Michael O’Leary. Not known as a shrinking violet or one to hold his tongue, he’s now looking for an assistant to carry out tasks including “treasury & portfolio management, investment analysis” and “general drudgery“.
The successful candidate will assist the “misunderstood but beloved CEO” and essential skills include: “thick skin, Saint-like patience, ability to operate without sleep or contact with the outside world” and “(ego) massage qualifications”. They should also possess their own “collection of nursery rhymes/bedtime stories“.
Thinking of applying for the role? Make sure you don’t fall into any of the following categories before you do: “Dubs fans, Man U supporters and cyclists”. Why? Such applicants will “not only be automatically excluded from the process, but will be tracked down, tortured and shot”.
Ending on a positive note with the promise of opportunity to grow within the Ryanair team (if you last more than a week), the job – based in Dublin – is not for the faint hearted. Still interested? Check out the full job description here.
