Badly worded job ad of the year #94

Lastminute.com is currently looking for a new marketing director for the UK.

The pink giant of the online travel agency world is clearly seeking a person of high calibre, thus its advertisement in the Sunday Times last weekend and now online.

The ad says:

"Must be able to combine rigour of off-line communications with the pioneering spirit of digital, and work with a sizeable team and budget."
Sounds like a nice job.

But hang on a minute. Does the current UK managing director John Bevan know about this throwaway line at the bottom of the ad:
"Will be given autonomy, a chance to make a difference and the opportunity to progress to UK Managing Director."
Surely some mistake?

[Lastminute.com has assured us Bevan is not leaving the company]
