Vision Clearance Executive – otherwise known as a window cleaner – has been voted the most stupid job title of all time.
It won a massive 28 percent of the vote, making it a clear winner in the poll to find the most laughable job title. It came ahead of Education Centre Nourishment Production Assistant (dinner lady) and Waste Removal Engineer (rubbish man). Fourth in the poll, carried out by video recruitment website www.jobs2view.com, was Domestic Engineer or Housewife to most people – followed by Knowlegde Navigator or Teacher.
The survey of 4,000 adults also revealed that a quarter of people have actually had one of these bizarre job titles. Respondents were asked to give the most daft job description they had ever come across while job-hunting and then to rate which they thought was the most stupid from an edited list.
4% had been called Stock Replenishment Adviser instead of the more recognisable ‘shelf stacker’ and another 2% have been known as Dispatch Services Facilitator – better known as a postman. One in 20 even admitted to knowing someone who has such a silly job title but don’t actually know what they do!
More worryingly, 2% have applied for a job with such a stupid job title only to find it to be completely different to what they thought is was. 6% of those have ended up accepting the job – despite it being something completely different to what they first thought. Only 19% think the job titles make the role seem more important.
