Alongside vacancies for shelf stackers and shop assistants, the government's much-vaunted Universal Jobmatch website, which will become mandatory for all unemployed people to use later this month, a circus is trying to recruit a wolf boy or girl.
The Circus of Horrors is looking to employ a man or woman who must be genuinely hairy. No fake beards or chest wigs are allowed.
The listing, on government website Directgov, states that hopeful applicants must have "strong circus skills" and all their own hair.
It reads: "All applicants must be genuine, people with beards or wearing masks will not be accepted, although a woman with a beard may be considered under a different job opportunities.
All applicants must also have Circus skills to a high standard.
"They must also have a minimum of 60,000 hairs growing on their face and linking up with the hairline, hair on the head is not included in this specification."
