Job title of the day

Simon Inman from Healdsburg, California has a letter in today's FT saying that the silliest job title he's come across is "pre-owned vehicle reallocation consultant" aka second-hand car salesman.


  1. In the accompanying article the wonderful and prescient Lucy suggested this was the daftest job title :

    "The next award is for the silliest job title. The judges admired the way that Tesla calls its car salesmen “Delivery Experience Specialists”, but after fierce debate, have given the prize to PwC in Switzerland for calling its HR head: Territory Human Capital Leader. The first three words are intolerably pompous, and the fourth is a lie. HR people don’t lead."

    Hope all is well and that 2015 turns out be happy, healthy and prosperous.
