Generic job adverts can be boring to read and are often overlooked. Sometimes employers have to think a little outside of the box to attract the best employees to a role and by injecting a bit of creativity and humour into their ads they will set themselves out from the straightforward ads from other companies.

Here are 10 of the funniest job adverts and although I’m not entirely sure that the humour was intentional in some of the ads below, they certainly stood out!

1. Self sacrificing minions needed!

2. Dream of becoming a doctor but didn’t get the grades for medical school? Here’s your answer!

3. For those with a lot of patience….and I mean A LOT.

4. For those looking to be married to their work…or their boss.

5. If you want to work with someone called Noel who’s nice, look no further! Need not apply if you’ve previously worked at Vodafone.

6. Calling all time travellers!

7. For the passive aggressive…Violence is not the answer.


8. And gain a new father maybe?

9. Language requirement: Drunk.

10. Free food, what else do you need to know?
