Ryanair invite applicants for 'worst job in Ireland' - 'No Dubs, a thick skin and an ability to operate without sleep'

By Patricia Murphy

Those with 'saint-like patience', an 'aversion to bolloxology' and a 'thick skin' have been invited to send in an application for Ireland’s worst job, an assistant to Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary.

In a job listing posted on the airline’s website this morning, the company have urged talented accountants to apply for the role to work directly with Ryanair’s “misunderstood but beloved CEO”, outlining that an ability to operate without sleep and social interaction will be taken as a big plus at the interview stage.

The advertisement openly states that Manchester United fans, Dubliners and cyclists need not apply, and those who do enter the recruitment process despite the warning will be “tracked down, tortured and shot”.

The new role in Ryanair headquarters also calls for applicants to be good with their hands, as O’Leary is on the lookout for an accountant that doubles as a masseuse at the end of the day.

The tongue-in-cheek advertisement received much attention on Monday, when it was shared on the Ryanair’s social channels.

Do you think you have what it takes to land 'the worst job in Ireland?'
