A Job Opening For James Bond’s 007 Position?

If you’ve always been envious of James Bond’s adventure-filled, ultra-glamorous secret agent lifestyle, you may want to apply for the position of “Target Elimination Specialist” with the British government.

A recruitment posting for the 007 position was spotted on the UK government’s official job site—unfortunately, it is obviously just a prank.

The tongue-in-cheek fictitious ad states that the central job scope for the position will be to “remove people whose continued existence poses a risk to the effective conduct of public order”.

Requirements that candidates would have to fulfill include proficiency with sniper rifles, the ability to find ways to leave foreign countries with unconventional means and a preference to have their martinis shaken and not stirred.

Would you have applied for the job if it was real?
