Job listing goes viral for lengthy list of demands

An Australian company head has posted a ridiculous listing on job search site Seek, asking for a part time executive and personal assistant.

The listing, which has since been deleted, went viral for its lengthy list of unreasonable requests, including never clocking off, dealing with his "Type A personality that isn't for everyone" and seemingly running the company, all for $50,000 a year.

The "adventurous 28-year-old entrepreneur" wrote that this job would be "the most challenging and rewarding position you've ever had".

Challenging is certainly right, with the list of demands seemingly unending.

"Your primary focus will be to protect his time, financial interests, image/brand and multiply his effectiveness".

"With a close relationship, you'll learn his personality and voice and ultimately manage the majority of his day to day activities, scheduling, correspondence, project management, research and errands - among other activities".

The "other activities" are described as "coffee to contract execution". The in between of these two tasks is not a small undertaking.

"You'll be writing articles, you'll be creating digital assets, you'll be looking after the CEO's properties and you'll be cleaning the office and maintaining supplies"

All of this is expected to be "INCREDIBLY organised" and the ideal candidate will be "intellectual, have integrity, tech savvy and be able to maintain alignment in the CEO's life".

You're also expected to be a mind reader, with the instruction that "success here will not happen simply by doing what you're told. You will need to know the desired outcomes."

At least you'll have your weekend's right?


The listing goes on "If you want to clock in and clock out of your job - this isn't for you. Expect after hours and weekend calls from time to time. Life doesn't stop when the workday does - high performers work until their tasks are done, NOT just until the clock runs out".

Part time is really just an abstract concept to this man it seems.

The listing has since been removed from Seek, and it is not known if the man found his part time, non-stop, organised, psychic, coffee-making assistant.
