I was looking for a job and then I found a job…

Punk Rock Job

Recently we saw this great job vacancy for a Punk London Project Co-ordinator at The Museum Of London. If you fancy applying then read on as we’ve a mate on the inside who told us a little bit about the selection process for the job.

Initially they’ll be a multiple choice exam with questions like “How old is Charlie Harper?” “What group was Sting in?” peppered with some trick questions like “Was Debbie Harry in Sham 69?” Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

There will be tests that will measure “How high can you pogo (unaided)” and “How long you can do the punk kicking dance for (before you run out of breath)” which we’re in training for at the moment.

There’s a very high standard set by Richard Jobson which you should be aiming for at the first interview stage.

Alledgedly there’ll also extra points awarded for anyone who turns up drunk or late for the interview and also for any clever applicants who can throw in a few choice swear words too.

Application forms MUST be in by 5pm on Sunday 27th March.

That deadline’s no good for us as we’re usually settling down to watch Countryfile then Antiques Roadshow at that time of night with our Sunday dinner on our laps. Vive Le Rock!

Win a free allotment (book)!
